This question already has an answer here:
What would be the best approach when a paper gets published referencing a work of yours, with a wrong explanation/assumption.
“The tube lines by [the Mayor of London, 1863] are OK, but can only
used on Tuesday, so in this work we traveled by cab”.
This is clearly a wrong statement, probably formulated due to lack of information. What should one do in these cases, if you were the Mayor of London?
My hunch says just ignore it, but I assume that for young researchers like me (unlike the Mayor of London) this can have a bigger impact, as if the first few references to our work are stating something wrong, people may actually stop using the tube.
