SALT LAKE CITY -- USANA kicked off a four-day convention in Salt Lake City Wednesday by setting a new Guinness World Record.

Employees of the company, which is headquartered in Utah, congregated in coordinated attire to set a record for the "largest gathering of people dressed as scientists."

USANA produces nutritional products and dietary supplements.

Don Macuga, Chief Communication Officer for USANA, spoke about the record-setting effort.

"Well it wasn't that easy, but it wasn't that hard because we've got about 12,000 people here," he said. "We broke the record, and we've still got thousands more standing out here dressed as scientists, we called it good: We'll break it again if we have to."
