4. PLC Codes on Produce

Although many people claim that PLC codes on fresh produce can tell you whether or not the food is GMO, it’s not always a reliable means of determining a foods origin. There are also some foods that don’t contain those PLC codes. Unless your market specifically states that these are “Non-GMO,” you should assume the following produce IS GMO:

  • Corn
  • Edamame
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow squash (sometimes called summer squash)
  • Papayas from Hawaii
  • Beets

There is a GMO potato coming out soon called Simplot, so keep your eye open for that one! Read more about GMO foods to avoid.

The Big Food industry is hoping that you will be too busy working, going to Black Friday sales, and rushing home to watch Orange is the New Black or Dancing with the Stars to pay much attention to food labels or to cook from scratch at all. Sometimes you wonder if they are right. If you have ever seen the line of cars waiting at a fast food drive through about 6PM, you might begin to wonder if anyone cares. But you care, don’t you? So do we! Demand accurate food labeling from congress and don’t support the Big Food industry, and avoid GMOs every time you shop!

    ALL GMO foods should be labeled as such. not printing this on food labels, just goes to prove they are not good to eat. Death to you Monsanto for polluting our food….
