Magne Bråtveit and Rune Djurhuus have removed themselves as authors from this article [1] as they did not approve the final version and they do not agree with the revisions made to the section “Occurrences of intoxications with chemicals used for pest control in transport containers and on bulk cargo ships” and Table 2, including relationships between claimed exposure and health effects and the statement on fatalities related to container opening.

The authorship list for this article is now: Xaver Baur, Lygia Therese Budnik, Zhiwei Zhao, Louis Verschoor, Federico Maria Rubino, Claudio Colosio and Jorgen R Jepsen.

Loius Verschoor, Frederico Maria Rubino and Claudio Colosio did not respond to correspondence about this erratum.
