In the June 2019 issue of The Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery in the article by Meier et al, “Obesity as protective against, rather than a risk factor for, postoperative Clostridium difficile infection: A nationwide retrospective analysis of 1,426,807 surgical patients,” several author corrections were not incorporated in the print edition, due to the publisher’s error. Figure 1’s number of surgical cases should read 1,457,676 and the number of patients without CDI in both Figure 1 and Table 1 should be 99.58% (1,420,781 patients). In addition, Table 1’s number of patients with CDI should be 0.42% (6,026 patients). These typographical errors do not change or impact the article’s results, conclusion, discussion or integrity of the work in any way.

The article has been updated in the online version. The publisher apologizes for the error.
