Neocate Availability Information Hub

The unexpected Abbott Nutrition recall in February has led to a huge surge in demand for alternative amino acid-based formula, including our Neocate® products. This has led to product shortages throughout the industry. These products are for medical use and require specialized ingredients and extensive quality and food safety procedures to make; because of this, it takes time to safely ramp up production.

While we have now been able to greatly increase Neocate production, unfortunately, product availability continues to be limited as we work to re-supply throughout the United States, with demand outpacing supply.

80% of our formula supply is allocated to medical distributors (including DMEs and home healthcare companies) who work with insurance carriers to supply families with our product. In addition, we know there are many families who depend on direct ordering and so our remaining supply is allocated to our own e-commerce site and our Amazon certified reseller.

As a team of parents and caregivers ourselves, we are doing everything we can to ensure Neocate is available and in stock through all the ways we distribute our products.

We know this is an incredibly distressing time for many families as you work to locate the formula your children need either through your suppliers or through our website. We want to be transparent about our actions to help support you.  Therefore, going forward, we will be providing a bi-weekly (every other week) Bulletin Update on supply and answers to other questions you may have.

Hello Alexis, Thank you for your feedback, we are happy to hear that the information we have provided is helpful for you and your family. We will continue to post bi-weekly bulletin updates regarding supply and answers to other questions you may have. We recognize this is a highly stressful situation and want you to know that our entire organization is fully committed to supporting you and doing everything we can to make sure our products are consistently available going forward.
This company is wonderful. During this crisis of the formula shortage neocate has updated families on WHY this is happening. I have contacted enfamil regarding the shortage and they respond with it’s due to Covid 19. I found this response to be lacking and as a parent with a child who has severe allergies to any other formula that isn’t amino acid base this response is the last thing I wanted to hear. Thank you neocate for having a great formula and for having the decency to alert families of the true reasoning of the shortage and that you are working diligently to create more.
