Neocate® Baby Formula and Infant Injuries

A recent Yale University study published in the April 2017 Bone Journal linked use of Neocate® formula to development of broken bones, fractures and rickets in infants, babies and children who used the formula due to phosphate deficiencies (a condition known as hypophosphatemia). The study involved 51 infants and children diagnosed with unexplained hypophosphatemia and significant bone disease, fractures, or rickets. Neonate® is an amino acid based baby formula fed to babies who have allergies or sensitivities to cow’s milk. The baby formula is manufactured by Nutricia and marketed in the US and other countries.

In March 2016, Nutricia put out a warning that babies using Neocate® formula as their primary or sole source of nutrition “should be routinely monitored by clinicians.” However, this warning is inadequate, and minimizes the risk and does not warn parents about the link between use of Neocate® and the risk of serious injuries to infants, babies and children including rickets, bone fractures and permanent disfigurement.

Meyerson & O’Neill is investigating multiple reports of serious infant and child injuries related to the use of Neocate®. If your infant, baby or child used Neocate® formula and developed broken bones, fractures, rickets, or hypophosphatemia, you may be entitled to monetary compensation.
