Erratum: Vol. 45, No. 49

In the article "Update: Fatal Air Bag-Related Injuries to Children -- United States, 1993-1996," the recommendations should have indicated that children aged less than or equal to 12 years, instead of less than 12 years, should always ride in the back seat in age-appropriate occupant restraints. On page 1075, in the first full paragraph, the second sentence should read, "Until passenger vehicles and light trucks are equipped with these smart air bags and they are shown to be safe and effective (3), all children aged less than or equal to 12 years should ride in the back seat using age- and size-appropriate occupant restraints (6,7) (see box)." On the same page, in the box titled "Recommendations to Prevent Air Bag-Associated Injuries to Infants and Children," the first sentence of the second bulleted item should read, "All children aged less than or equal to 12 years should be properly secured in the back seat."
