Posted: Updated:
Birmingham, AL -

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has fined and penalized four makers and marketers of weight loss products.  The agency says the companies used deceptive advertising claims to sell weight-loss products.  The companies include the marketers of Sensa, a weight loss product sprinkled on food; L'Occitane Inc. for claiming its skin creams could reduce body size; LeanSpa for  fake news web sites of acai berry and "colon cleanse" weight loss supplements, and HCG Diet Direct for selling liquid drops containing a diluted form of a human hormone.
