A cylindrical, 14 OZ., aluminum can with six small holes in its lid. A light yellow-colored printed paper label covers the can. The label includes an illustration of the trademarked neo-mull-soy mascot, the Davee Duck. The inscription on the label reads "ADD WATER/CONCENTRATE/neo-mull-soy/SOY FORMULA/MILK-FREE/Balanced/nutrition for/the normal/newborn."
Neo-mull-soy, originally developed by Borden Co., was acquired by Syntex in 1971. In 1978, Syntex eliminated salt from the formula, causing weight loss, chloride deficiency, and other health issues in children across the country. In 1979, the manufacturer of Neo-mull-soy stopped manufacturing this product, halted distribution to wholesalers, and requested that wholesalers stop sales to retailers due to studies indicating the formula promoted infant metabolic alkalosis.
Gift of The Syntex Syva Alumni Association.
