As part of a settlement agreement with the Federal Trade Commission, six online marketers will permanently halt their allegedly deceptive practice of using fake news websites to sell acai berry supplements and other weight-loss products.
The settlements bars the companies from further deceptive claims about health-related products, such as the acai berry weight-loss supplements and colon cleansers that they marketed.
The settlements also requires the defendants pay about $500,000 collectively, because their advertisements violated federal law.
The berries might be good anti-oxidants but no benefit for weight loss!
