The letters have ordered the companies to stop giving genetic tests to residents of California until they can prove that the testing and all of their work is legal.

The companies must prove doctors are actually ordering the tests, and that the labs used for testing are licensed by the state of California.

These genetic tests allow patients to see their overall risks for common diseases.
