An error occurred in the article by Seifert et al, titled “Health Effects of Energy Drinks on Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults” published in the March 2011 issue of Pediatrics (2011;127:511–528; doi:10.1542/peds.2009-3592). On page 519, in Table 6, the table mistakenly used the “Number of case mentions” from the Poison Control Center (PCC) data as the denominator to calculate the percentages for the values in all of the other columns. The data that should have been used instead to calculate the percentages are the values under the column “Number of single exposures” of the PCC data. In addition, the column headings were modified to specifically state the column headings as shown in the PCC data. The revised table is provided here.
