How to Differ Genetically Engineered Fruits from Organic Ones at Stores

Found this interesting statement that might help when in the Produce section:

Look at the code printed on the tiny sticker stuck on the produce. If the PLU (Price Look Up) code begins with the number 9, it’s organic. Conventionally grown fruits and vegetables bear a code beginning with 4. If the code begins with an 8, the produce is genetically engineered—making this the only genetic engineering label in the United States.
