It maybe possible for PKU to be missed with the test, but if your worried I’d say get it redone. It’s better to be safe then sorry. When I was born my mom had my brother (he’s a year older then me) retested because he was slightly developementally slow just to be safe, but he didn’t have it. Also after I was born my mom had all of my younger sisters tested twice just to be safe, and my aunt had her first son tested twice aswell.
