Morgan & Morgan Wants to Hear from Users of 23andMe’s Personalized DNA Test Kits
Date:12/6/2013

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) December 06, 2013

Morgan & Morgan’s Complex Litigation Group is investigating potential claims on behalf of Florida consumers who purchased a personalized $99 DNA test kit sold by 23andMe, Inc.

On November 22, the FDA issued a warning letter to 23andMe, Inc., instructing the company to discontinue its marketing of the DNA test kit. According to the letter, products used to diagnose, mitigate or prevent disease require marketing clearance or approval from the FDA; however, 23andMe, Inc. has not obtained FDA clearance or approval for its product, the agency said.

According to the FDA, the company has also not provided any assurance that it has analytically or clinically validated the DNA kit for its intended uses. In its letter, the FDA expressed concern about the potential health consequences posed to users who might seek unnecessary medical treatment as a result of false positive or false negative assessments for certain genetic risks, such as breast and ovarian cancer.

Morgan & Morgan’s Complex Litigation Group wants to hear from Florida consumers who purchased a personalized DNA test kit from 23andMe, Inc. Those who purchased the DNA test kit can visit http://www.forthepeople.com/ and fill out the free case review form for more information.

The genetic testing company is currently facing a putative class action lawsuit in California over the product. (Casey v. 23andMe Inc., case number 3:13-cv-02847, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California.)
