Abstract

The authors regret that a copy and paste error was made resulting in an incorrect confidence interval (CI) presented for the association between higher consumption of minimally processed foods with lower molar sum of di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (ΣDEHP). The previously reported 95 % CI of 3.4 %–22.9 % was incorrectly copied and pasted. The correct CI is 2.1 %–19.4 %. The description of this association in the abstract should be: “10 % higher consumption of minimally-processed foods was associated with lower ΣDEHP (10.8 %: 2.1 %–19.4 %).” The description of this association in the results should be: “each 10 % higher dietary proportion of minimally processed food intake was associated with 10.8 % (95 % CI: 2.1 %, 19.4 %) lower urinary ΣDEHP.” This error does not change the overall conclusion regarding the significant association between higher consumption of minimally processed foods and lower urinary ΣDEHP and instead shows higher precision with a tighter CI. The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
