KUSA - The genetic testing company 23 and Me is facing a class action lawsuit in California.

The company claims its at home DNA test kit can give you specific health recommendations based on your genetic data. Some of the health recommendations include data such as risk for breast cancer or an individual's reaction to certain medications.

The woman who has filed the lawsuit against the company says those results are meaningless and 23 and Me uses false and misleading advertisement.

The lawsuit comes after the FDA ordered the company to immediately stop marketing the genetic test.
