3. My mistake. DeMet's bought the True North brand from Frito-Lay earlier this year. DeMet's itself
is owned by Brynwood Partners, a private equity fund.

5. Well, I'm betting that their workers aren't right-wingers.
Boycotts hurt everyone, including people who are just trying to earn a living. If you like the snacks, buy them. Someone's working where they are made.
