Erratum

Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] did not include in the Acknowledgements section the complete funding information. The following sentence was missing: “This research was made possible in part the following grant “Ethical and Legal Challenges in Communicating Individual Biomonitoring and Personal Exposure Results to Study Participants” from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences #1R01ES017514-01A1”.

The corrected Acknowledgements have been included in full in this erratum.
