Erratum

After publication of the original article [1], the authors found the following typo occurred:
  1. 1.

    In the original article Title, “arachis hypogea” should be “Arachis hypogaea”. Please note that this has been corrected in the above title.

     
  2. 2.

    In the second paragraph in the Background, the word “hypoea” shoud be “hypogaea”.

     
  3. 3.

    References 4 and 38 should be corrected as follows:

     
  • [Amri E, Lenoi S. Aflatoxin and fumonisin contamination of sun-dried sweet potato (ipomoea batatas L.) chips in Kahama District, Tanzania. J Appl Env Microbiol. 2016;4(3):55–62.]

The word “ipomoea batatas” should be “Ipomoea batatas”.
  • [Yameogo RT, Kassamba B. Aspergillus favus and aflatoxins on tropical seeds used for snacks, Arachi hypogaea, Balanites aegyptiaca and Sclerocarya birrea. Trop Sci. 1999;39:46–9.]

The word “Arachi” should be “Arachis”. On the same line remove italics in the word “and”.

The correct References are as follows:
  1. 1)

    Amri E, Lenoi S. Aflatoxin and fumonisin contamination of sun-dried sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas L.) chips in Kahama District, Tanzania. J Appl Env Microbiol. 2016;4(3):55–62.

     
  2. 2)
