A white US woman says she is suing a sperm bank after being inseminated with a black man's sperm - claiming her now two-year-old daughter will be stigmatised for being mixed race.

According to a lawsuit, Jennifer Cramblett from Uniontown, Ohio thought she was using the vials of a white man, but discovered after her pregnancy that the sperm bank had sent the wrong batch.

She says her daughter Payton, now two years old, was already facing prejudice in the "intolerant" town, where 98% of residents are white.

The lawsuit also references hair care as one of the issues causing problems for the family.

"To get a decent cut, Jennifer must travel to a black neighborhood, far from where she lives, where she is obviously different in appearance, and not overtly welcome."

Cramblett claims the error took place because Midwest Sperm Bank confused her order for fials from Donor 380 as one for 330.

She told NBC News her love for her daughter did not stop her from wanting redress for the alleged error.

"I am happy that I have a healthy child [...] But I'm not going to let them get away with not being held accountable."

Cramblett's lawyer says the institution cut off contact with their client and only compensated her with an apology and a refund for six vials.

"They've made the one mistake a sperm bank can't make. It's not like she was ordering pizza."

Midwest Sperm Bank has declined to comment on the claims.
