The women file a lawsuit against the test maker for alleged inaccuracy of the product.
Wired PR News – A group of mothers in New York City have filed a lawsuit against the maker of a baby gender detection test due to the product allegedly being inaccurate. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the six women filed the claim against Lowell, Massachusetts based Acu-Gen Biolab Inc. in Manhattan Supreme Court, citing they were not given correct results after using the Baby Gender Mentor test, which costs approximately $275.
As noted by the AP, the lawsuit states that the test is marketed as the “gold standard for prenatal gender detection,” and makers assert that sex can be determined within weeks of conception. Marketers and makers of the product stand accused in the lawsuit of fraud and negligence. The women are reportedly seeking damages that have not been specified.
