Note the #s on the Fruit Label

Mr. David Ng emailed me this simple but very useful common knowledge.

Conventional Fruit Labels four digits starting with 4.
Organic Fruit Labels five digits and starts with number 9.
Genetically Modified Fruits starts 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, it has been genetically modified (GMO). Will you buy these fruits? It's up to you to decide! This is a free world and free choice!
