Volume 1, no. 5, e00289-16, 2016, Due to the classification definitions that we used for our work, six isolates were misclassified for the fimH allele or sublineage in our paper. The revised fimH alleles or sublineages are as follows: HVH186 (H30Rx), J069 (H30Rx), N439/N1027/N1471 (H30R [non-Rx]), and N1449 (H41). A revised figure and revised tables are available from the authors upon request. (We are extremely grateful to Yasufumi Matsumura, Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine, Japan, for his tremendous help on molecular analysis.)
