At my local Dominick’s (Safeway) in Chicago, I found what rang up on the receipt as “Yucca Root” (with two Cs)—and this is how it was labeled on the bin in the vegetable isle, too.
But the sticker on the vegetable itself says, “Cal Fresco Yuca Root, PLU #4819, Produce of Costa Rica”—with one “C”.
Is this the correct PLU/produce code, and, if not, what PLU should we look for?
