FDA Orders DNA Company To Stop Sales
The Food and Drug Administration is ordering a company that sells DNA home-test kits to stop selling them to consumers.
The FDA says the company 23andMe has not proven that its DNA testing service is being done properly or accurately, warning of health risks from inaccurate results. The agency says 23andMe must stop marketing its services and test kits until the regulators are satisfied with the company’s practices.
Google has poured millions of investment dollars into 23andMe, which was funded by the wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin.
