AVOID FOOD WITH FIVE DIGIT CODES STARTING WITH 8; ex. 81549 Which indicates Genetically Engineered Food.

“Produce shopping tips—those annoying stickers on fruits and veggies tell you A LOT! 4 numbers mean they were conventionally grown, 5 numbers starting with number 8 means they are genetically modified (GMO), and 5 numbers starting with 9 means they were organically grown (no pesticides or nasty GMOs).”
