Claim: List details food companies owned by Monsanto.
Examples: [Collected via e-mail, February 2012]
A post on Facebook lists over 60 brands/companies owned by Monsanto.
Origins: The list reproduced above purportedly details a wealth of food-related companies or brands supposedly owned by Monsanto, the multinational agricultural biotechnology corporation. In fact, Monsanto doesn’t own the listed companies; this item appears to be an attempt to compile a list of companies selling food items that make use of products developed by Monsanto (such as artificial sweeteners or agricultural products derived from genetically engineered seed).
