The percentage reduction in Ef due to 12 days of refrigeration at is reported incorrectly in the text of both the Abstract and the Results (Sec. 3.2) (1). The published text states that Ef is reduced to of control values: “…Ef (to of control values, )…” (p. 064502-1), and “By day 12, Ef decreased to ( CI)” (p. 064502-3). Please note that the decimal point is incorrectly placed, and Ef was in fact reduced to of control values. This percentage is consistent with the reduction in Ef illustrated in Fig. 3(c) (1).
