January 2014: A class-action lawsuit was filed against 23andMe, Inc. for allegedly falsely marketing its DNA Saliva Collection Kit and Personal Genome Service. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the company represents that the Personal Genome Service would provide consumers with information about their health – including “reports on over 240+ health conditions and traits” – without evidence to support such claims and without FDA authorization to make such claims. (Martin et al v. 23andMe, Inc., Case No. 14-cv-00429, N. D. CA.).
