The Federal Trade Commission took action Tuesday to shut down what it says are 10 websites that have been masquerading as news sites in an attempt to market acai berry weight-loss products. The FTC is asking courts in several states to freeze the operations' assets pending a trial, and to order the companies behind the products to provide refunds. Illinois' Attorney General has also filed suit.
