Gotta love Artscroll.

Though you'd think that since we normally follow beit Hillel that they would have said that the person has fulfilled his obligation.

Or is Artscroll now too frum to follow beit Hillel?

Actually (I didn't know this until looking it up just now) this is one of the rare cases where halacha is like Beit Shammai. So this looks like a case of sloppiness, or intellectual laziness or disrespect for the text, not of chumra-ism.
