Senator Chuck Schumer says popular home DNA test kits are putting consumers' privacy at risk.
During a news conference on Sunday, Schumer said DNA testing companies often sell genetic data to a third party, without informing the consumer.
He's calling on the FTC to investigate the industry and ensure that the privacy policies protect consumers.
Schumer says while he doesn't want to impede genetic advancements, "a framework needs to be established for this kind of service."
