New Jersey

is warning consumers to be on the lookout for sweet corn and other produce bearing labels that say it was grown in the Garden State when, in fact, it was not.

The warning came June 17, the same day that the state announced the start of blueberry season. New Jersey grew 53 million pounds of the fruit last year and is one of the top producers in the nation.
