Can the wrong emergency contact written in ink in a passport be crossed out?

Is this something I should call the State Department about or is it just a tempest in a teapot?
I just got my renewed passport. In the back, where it plainly says to write in pencil, I wrote the wrong name
in pen. I'm thinking I can't white it out (or whatever the 21st century equivalent is) because that would raise all sorts of red flags at customs. It would, right?? And what about just crossing out the wrong name and inserting the right one, in pencil, above?
Anyone have any experience in this? Thanks.
