"a screening test-not a diagnostic test. It simply identifies which kids should be tested, not which have PKU. Most children with a positive screening test do not turn out to have the disease."
So we decided to pass on it. We felt it was unnecessary, this of course was what we decided and felt was great for us and our child.
