Corrections and clarifications

Corrections and clarifications column editor

• The use of the word “fewer” in a headline on an article about food manufacturers combating rising costs by reducing pack sizes (Same price, fewer Coco Pops? Sounds like a case of shrinkflation, 6 April, page 3) implied that the number of Coco Pops in a box had fallen. As the story itself said, while the weight of packs has fallen, the number of Coco Pops in each has actually risen, with Kellogg’s saying the weight had dropped because it had cut the amount of sugar in the recipe. However, it is not the big box (formerly 800g; now 720g) in which the number has risen from 14,500 to 16,500, as we said, but a smaller box (formerly 550g; now 510g).

• An analysis of data by the Pew Research Center showed that Islam would become the world’s largest religion by 2075, not within two decades as we implied because of an editing error (Islam on track to become world’s largest religion, 6 April, page 5).

• We misnamed the Doctor Who writer and producer Steven Moffat as Peter Moffat (Doctor Who writer dismisses fuss over gay companion as nonsense, 6 April, page 7).
