There is to be an independent investigation of the medical testing company Medvet after personal details of its customers became available on the internet.
Medvet is owned by SA Health and provides DNA and drug testing services for private use, as well as selling home drug testing kits.
Private information including addresses have been accessible via the search engine Google.
SA Health CEO David Swan admits some details can still be found online.
"We're deleting all the files off of Google and we're actually in contact when they refresh, as I understand it, their bases every 12 hours which we have requested and we're hoping it'll be off within the next few hours," he said.
Medvet says it is briefing a forensic team about the problem.
It says Google seems to have found a 'hole' in the website and the breach is under investigation.
