According to the linked article from the Philadelphia Inquirer, the stickers on produce with number codes identify if the produce is organic or genetically modified. Most produce has a 4 digit code. Organic produce has a 5 digit code that starts with 9. Genetically engineered produce has a 5 digit code that starts with 8.
