***If there are only four numbers, this means that the produce was grown conventionally or “traditionally” with the use of pesticides.
*** If the number starts with “8”, this item is a genetically modified fruit or vegetable. It is impossible to eat organic produce that are grown from genetically modified seeds.
**If there are five numbers in the PLU code, and the number starts with “9”, this tells you that the produce was grown organically and is not genetically modified. Yay!!
