Weight-control supplement firm Metabolife filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in San Diego federal court July 1, citing the "substantial burden" of ephedra litigation. The company simultaneously announced the "potential sale" of its assets, free of liabilities for $23.5 mil. to Grand Rapids, Mich.-based IdeaSphere.
