In “Committee Opinion No. 485: Prevention of Early-Onset Group B Streptococcal Disease in Newborns” from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists,1 there is an error on page 1020 in Table 1. In the “Key Points Changed From 2002” column, the last sentence in the “GBS specimen collection and processing” category incorrectly reads, “Laboratories to report GBS in concentrations of greater than or equal to 104 CFU,” and should instead read, “Laboratories to report GBS in concentrations of greater than or equal to 104 CFU.” The full, corrected sentence is as follows: “Laboratories to report GBS in concentrations of greater than or equal to 104 CFU in urine culture specimens (previously, it was GBS ‘in any concentration’).
