Look at your labels!! PLU (price look up) Codes on Fruit

You know those annoying little stickers you have to peel off of your fruit before you wash and eat it at home?

Those stickers are IMPORTANT! Those stickers tell you where your fruit came from and if it is conventionally grown, organically grown, or if it a GMO!

The most common number code you’re going to notice on most fruits and vegetables in your local produce section is going to be a four digit code that usually begins with a four.

A four digit PLU code that starts with a 3 or 4 represents a fruit or vegetable that is grown conventionally.

A five digit PLU code that begins with a 9 means the fruit or vegetable is organic.

A five digit PLU code that begins with an 8 means the fruit or vegetable has been genetically modified and is a GMO.

Remember, it’s your responsibility to know what you’re eating and putting into your body.
