In the Article by Phuka et al, titled “Complementary Feeding With Fortified Spread and Incidence of Severe Stunting in 6- to 18-Month-Old Rural Malawians,” published in the July issue of the Archives (2008;162:619-626), minor errors with respect to the energy (caloric) and nutrient (protein, carbohydrate, fat, copper, and iodine) contents of the used supplements occurred in the Abstract and in Table 1. However, the differences are small and the conclusions of the study results are unaffected by them. On page 619, the Intervention segment of the Abstract should have read as follows: “Participants were randomized to receive 1 year of daily supplementation with 71 g of LP (282 kcal), 50 g of FS (FS50) (264 kcal), or 25 g of FS (FS25) (130 kcal).” A corrected copy of Table 1, published on page 620, is reprinted here in its entirety.
