Identify Genetically Modified Organic Fruits

Conventional Fruit Labels 
Four digits starting with 4

Organic Fruit Labels 

Five digits and starts with number 9

Genetically Modified Fruits 

Start with the digit 8

So next time you go shopping, remember these critical numbers and know how to avoid purchasing inorganic and GMO fruits. Shop Safe :

This is good to know because stores aren't obligated to tell you if a fruit has been genetically 
modified . 

So if you come across an apple in the store and it's label is 4922, it's a conventional apple grown with herbicides and harmful fertilizers. 

If it has a sticker 99222, it's organic and safe to eat. 

If it says 89222, then do not buy!!!! It has been 
genetically modified (GMO).
