Kristensen Files Class Action Lawsuit Against Maker of SneakPeek Early Gender Test

Los Angeles, CA – On December 29, 2015, Kristensen LLP and the Texas-based Mazzola Law Firm, PLLC, filed a class action law suit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California against Gateway Genomics, LLC, creator of the SneakPeek early detection gender test. The Complaint alleges nine causes of action based on fraud, breaches of warranty, false advertising, and other violations of various consumer protection statutes. Gateway Genomics claims that its SneakPeek in-home blood test can detect the gender of a baby with 99% accuracy, as early as nine weeks into a pregnancy. They charge expecting families a premium – $79 (previously $99) for the standard test, or $169 for the FastTrack test – in order to learn the gender of their child several weeks earlier than they would be able to using traditional methods like a sonogram. However, the test, which has not been cleared or approved by the FDA, has recently come under scrutiny, and many believe that it is based on flawed science and is far less accurate than advertised. Numerous families across the country who used the SneakPeek test, only to discover that their test results were incorrect, can attest that SneakPeek’s accuracy may be far closer to a coin flip than the 99% advertised by Gateway Genomics. Even if SneakPeek correctly identified the gender of your baby, Gateway Genomics should not be allowed to charge a premium for a blood test that might be as reliable as a magic 8-ball. If you have purchased a SneakPeek early detection gender test, we want to hear your story.
