(1) In the original publication, the starting point in time for the three feeding trials was incorrectly given. The first sentence in the second paragraph of the “Rat feeding trials” subchapter in the Materials and methods section (page 1098) should read: “The first 90-day feeding trial and the chronic toxicity/carcinogenicity study were started 2–3 weeks and the second 90-day feeding trial was started 1–2 weeks after delivery of the animals at the animal testing facility”. (2) In the original publication, Figs. 5 and 6 (page 1118) showed, for all points in time, the mean body weight and the food consumption data, respectively, of only the male and female rats that survived until the end of the chronic toxicity/carcinogenicity study. The figure legends refer, however, to another option, where all available data are used to calculate mean body weights and feed consumptions, and these legends describe the figures that we intended to publish. The current Figs. 5 and 6 should, therefore, be replaced by the accompanying new Figs. 5 and 6.
