I wonder 'What's the deal with those stickers on apples'? http://www.hlntv.com/shows/morning-express-robin-meade/articles/2014/01/15/8-things-you-never-knew-about-produce-stickers/ Robin Meade's "Morning Express" tells us they tell the fruit's price to the cashier's computer; does that mean the cashier's computer is the one paying for it there? (i.e. why is the price not PRINTED on there? They do everything else to make the labels 'good for humans'---from 'making the tag edible (not "nutritious," but accidentally eating one won't kill you too-too much), to making the glue FDA-approved

I don't like these stickers. Perhaps they are OK to be labelled on the oranges, but I have to remove it at first if it is labelled on an apple. It is inconvenient. Besides, this kind of label means nothing to me. I don't look at it.

Especially on fruits they don't sell one-at-a-time, but by-the-bag or -bunch! Well, you do have those rare occasions when you can't exactly tell 'what kind of apple it is' without the tag (like Gala vs. Fuji ... slightly different prices, usually). And the link I gave does tell some (at least one) of the things you can tell from the number on the tag ... something about 'to GMO or not to GMO' (which is a good question ) http://www.mylot.com/post/2911638/gmos
