As I was reading a book that we had just recently purchased, they had information in it that told us about fresh produce. I am always concerned about GMO's in my food. It turns out that the UPC symbol on the produce will tell you whether it is grown organically or if it is GMO.
According to this book if the UPC symbol has:
5 digits and is starting with a 9 it is Organic,
4 digits and starting with either a 3 or 4 it is grown conventionally,
5 digits and starting with an 8 it is GMO.
DO NOT EAT THIS PRODUCE as it is grown with the chemicals that kills weeds and will put toxins in your body.
You can also look up the UPC symbol at this site:

Please pass this information on as we need to stop the poisoning of people.


  1. We try to eat healthily. We read labels, stay away from HFCS and processed foods, and yet, we didn't know this about the UPC code. We appreciate you sharing it. We'll add that to the list. "Look for the code as well as the label."

    1. When I found the code I new I had to publish it. The bees need all the help they can get and if we can educate the public about GMO's it in turn will help the bees which in turn will help us.

  2. Let's hope we are able to stay healthy as well as our Bees staying healthy.
