Error in Reported Figures and in Reference Name

Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 2001;155(4):461. doi:10.1001/archpedi.155.4.461

In the nutrition article titled "Beverage Choices Affect Adequacy of Children's Nutrient Intakes," published in the November issue of the ARCHIVES (2000;154:1148-1152), on page 1151, the fifth line in column 2 should have read "by 1% to 4% per ounce (OR, 0.99-0.96)" and the sentence starting on the eighth line should have read: "For 2- to 5-year-old girls, the median serving of 8 oz of carbonated soda would decrease the likelihood of achieving recommended calcium intake by 28%. Substituting 8 oz of milk for the soda would increase the likelihood by 1141%, that is, more than 10 times." On page 1152, in paragraphs 2 and 3 and reference 4, the first author should have been Harnack.
