TYPEbase4, a searchable food value database by blood group, now displays all updated values on listed foods. While further amendments will be few, this Errata and Clarifications Page will serve as our change log, showing any additions or modifications made relative to the food lists in Live Right 4 Your Type.

If oats are an avoid for type O, why is there a recipe containing it in the type O recipe section of the book?
Simple answer: There was a miscommunication between the recipe editor and the co-writers.

More complicated answer: Oatmeal is a neutral for type O secretors, but avoid for type O non-secretors. [See TYPEbase entry] Since 'Eat Right 4 Your Type' did not distinguish between secretors and non-secretors (it only used ABO) the writers elected to make oatmeal an avoid for type Os of both secretor types, since its being a type O non-secretor avoid was viewed as more important than it being a type O secretor neutral. This was what was not communciated to the recipe editor.
