Recently, Li et al. claimed to have found evidence for multiple generations of stars in the intermediate-age clusters NGC 1783, NGC 1806 and NGC 411 in the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds. Here we show that these young stellar populations are present in the field regions around these clusters and are not likely associated with the clusters themselves. Using the same data sets, we find that the background subtraction method adopted by the authors does not adequately remove contaminating stars...[Show more]
