A corrigendum on
Thymoquinone Inhibits Virulence Related Traits of Cronobacter sakazakii ATCC 29544 and Has Anti-biofilm Formation Potential

by Shi, C., Yan, C., Sui, Y., Sun, Y., Guo, D., Chen, Y., et al. (2017). Front. Microbiol. 8:2220. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.02220

In the first paragraph in the “Introduction” of this article, the number of Cronobacter species was incorrectly described as ten. Actually, Cronobacter pulveris, Cronobacter helveticus and Cronobacter turicensis were removed from the genus in 2014.

The original sentence should be corrected as follows: Cronobacter spp. is currently considered to consist of 7 species: Cronobacter sakazakii, C. malonaticus, C. universalis, C. dublinensis, C. muytjensii, C. condiment, and C. zurichensis (Stephan et al., 2014), among which C. sakazaii is one of the two group 1 clinically relevant species that form the majority of the clinical isolates. The authors regret this error.

The original article has been updated.
