Neocate Splash Unflavored Information




This page provides answers to questions about Neocate Splash Unflavored

Dear Neocate Community:

At Nutricia North America, we work very hard to ensure your child receives the best possible nutritional support. Towards this goal, we want to update you on a recent report regarding Neocate Splash Unflavored. We have received concerns from individuals requiring tube feedings and using Neocate Splash Unflavored. In some cases, patients are finding small visible particles of the calcium ingredient in the product that has clogged their feeding tubes. The particles are safe for consumption and do not affect the taste or texture of the product.

To maintain the integrity of the product, we DO NOT recommend straining the particles. If your child is a tube fed patient using Splash Unflavored successfully or consuming Splash Unflavored orally, you may continue using the Splash Unflavored as directed by your physician.

We are evaluating the product, our factory and our supply chain to actively explore potential solutions for affected tube fed patients. Nutricia will replace any affected Neocate Splash products. If you have experienced difficulties, please contact our Nutrition Services Department at 1-800-365-7354 (Mo-Fri 8:30am – 5pm EST) or nutritionservices@nutricia.com for replacement directions.
