Re: What to know about GMOs (Metro, June 4)
In the article, the sidebar, “Check the number,” about GMO PLU codes on produce, is misleading.
According to Internet rumor debunkers Snopes.com, the numbers are not necessarily accurate.
They say they know of nobody who is currently using the five-digit number starting with eight on their GMO produce, and that retailers do not necessarily comply with this system.
This seems to be another misleading Internet meme.
