In this article, pyrethroid metabolite measurements were reported to be specific gravity-corrected. However, the statistical analyses were completed with uncorrected pyrethroid metabolite measurements. Authors refitted models using specific gravity-corrected concentrations and found that the results were largely consistent with those obtained using uncorrected values. This error affected the data in Tables S1, S2, S4, S6, and S8 and Figure S2 in the supplemental material and Tables 2 and 3 in the article, as well as associated text. The main tables and associated text, as well as the supplemental tables and figure, have been corrected in this erratum and the original article. This error does not affect the results with DDT/E serum measurements.

The corrected text is provided below:

In the "Maternal Exposure to DDT/E and Pyrethroids" section of the "Results" section, the second to last sentence of the first paragraph should read:

The 75th percentile of pyrethroid metabolites ranged from 0.74 to 1.84 pg/L in VHEMBE vs. 0.15 to 0.5 pg/L in NHANES (Castorina et al. 2010).

The third paragraph of the "Maternal Exposure to DDT/E and Pyrethroids"...
