Codes used to identify foods we buy in the US. They're not a requirement, though, so we may not always see them. Still, good to know. I've written the codes down and will take them to the food stores with me....

Yes, I did when we went grocery shopping tonight. I didn't need to look at it, though, for I shopped in the organic section where there are no non-organic produce.

Figured you would but just checking to make sure you had :smileyhappy:

Ah!  That explains the cherries I bought the other day which had the 9 at the beginning of a 5 digit code - they weren't in the "organic" section.

Thanks Donna -
