The other day I bought some pomegranates w/o realising they were 3XXX, which I know to be GMO (or so I am told? ) But today a new batch of pomegranates was in, still same code, but there was a logo on the display case for the "pomwonderful" brand pomegranates.
has any1 ever heard of http://www.nongmoproject.org/ and is it valid? are these pomegranates non-gmo.. does the start of the PLU code with a 3 mean anything? thx let me know:)
3 and 4 = conventional
8 = GMO
3 means irradiated
8 starting a 5 digit code means gmo, but no one uses them.
thx for the replies:) I clearly got mixed up because I was misinformed:)
At this moment there are basically no GMO fruits with the exception of Hawaiian Papaya
