Tattooed Fruit and Veggies?

"Customers do not like them, and they don't hold enough information anyway."

Those messy stickers on fruit and veggies may have seen their day, to be replaced by laser-coated tattoos that include "their names, identifying numbers, countries of origin and other information that helps speed distribution. The marks are burned onto the outer layer of the skin and are visible to discerning consumers and befuddled cashiers alike."

Ah yes! Technology in our fruit and salad bowls. Just what we were waiting for!
