It is shown that it is possible to construct an infinity of Fock spaces of flavor neutrinos depending on arbitrary unphysical mass parameters, in agreement with the theory of Blasone and Vitiello in the version proposed by Fujii, Habe and Yabuki. However, we show by reductio ad absurdum that these flavor neutrino Fock spaces are clever mathematical constructs without physical relevance, because the hypothesis that neutrinos produced or detected in charged-current weak interaction processes are described by flavor neutrino Fock states implies that measurable quantities depend on the arbitrary unphysical flavor neutrino mass parameters.
