What does some reports have the same safetyreportid?

Open Data Asked on September 30, 2021

I thought that safetyreportid is the unique identity of a report, but I found that some safetyreportid like "5390497-5" has two or three reports in openFDA when I search by API:

Could I ask why there are multiple reports with the same safetyreportid in openFDA?

One Answer

As indicated on the FDA FAERS page:

Duplicate and incomplete reports are in the system: There are many instances of duplicative reports and some reports do not contain all the necessary information.

This is one of those cases.
