Corrections: Feb. 19, 2022 – The New York Times

An article on Monday about the history of lox misstated the clue for LOX in the Feb. 7 crossword. The clue is “bagels and ___,” not “Schmear topper.” The error was repeated in the headline.

Because of an editing error, an article on Friday about a proposal by Mayor Eric Adams of New York to suspend the expansion of New York’s composting program misattributed a statement on a mayoral campaign platform that claimed that methane from organic waste was “destroying our environment and speeding climate change.” It was part of Mr. Adams’s platform, not Bill de Blasio’s.

An article on Friday about John H.

Google does not recognize the union as formal or official. The article also misstates the name of a publication. It is Insider, not Business Insider (its former name).
