PLU Labels

You can tell whether the produce is organic or genetically modified by the PLU code (the number found on the sticker on the produce).  Conventionally grown produce has a 4-digit code, organic produce has a 5-digit code starting with a 9, and genetically modified produce has a 5-digit code starting with an 8.
