Errata: Vol. 61, No. 25

In the report, "Sodium Azide Poisoning at a Restaurant — Dallas County, Texas, 2010," on page 459, the first paragraph under the subheading, "Case-Control Study," should read as follows:

"Because no contaminated vehicle was confirmed immediately, a case-control study was conducted to assess the association of the illnesses with specific food and drink. Potential controls were identified among the restaurant patrons and contacted by using records of credit card transactions. A case-patient was defined as a restaurant patron reporting dizziness or fainting within a 6-hour period that encompassed the time of symptom onset for the five known patients. Controls were patrons who purchased food or drink at the restaurant during the same timeframe and did not report dizziness or fainting after their meal. Thirteen of the 14 controls said they did not consume iced tea. The fourteenth control recalled drinking iced tea but having no symptoms; however, further investigation revealed that this person drank iced tea from a different self-serve urn, before the urn used by the five case-patients was placed in service. Another person, who had been selected as a potential fifteenth control, reported feeling dizzy but did not drink iced tea. This person attributed the dizziness to a chronic condition. However, because the person met the case definition, for purposes of the case-control study this person was counted as a sixth case-patient. The case-control study found that consuming iced tea was 65 times more likely among the case-patients than the controls (OR = 65.0; CI = 2.4–3,292)."

In the report, "Updated Recommendations for Use of Tetanus Toxoid, Reduced Diphtheria Toxoid, and Acellular Pertussis (Tdap) Vaccine in Adults Aged 65 Years and Older — Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), 2012," on page 468, an extraneous paragraph was erroneously included. The fourth paragraph of the report is virtually identical to the second paragraph and should be deleted.
