Incorrect and Misleading Data

JAMA Pediatr. 2015;169(8):791. doi:10.1001/jamapediatrics.2015.2166

In the article titled “Breastfeeding and Childhood Leukemia Incidence: A Meta-analysis and Systematic Review,” published online June 1, 2015, in JAMA Pediatrics,1 there were errors and misleading data in Table 2. All analyses were recalculated and, to avoid confusion, the columns showing crude odds ratios (95% CIs) recalculated using raw data and weight/random data have been omitted from Table 2.2 The results and conclusions of the meta-analysis were not affected.2 This article was corrected online.
