In an answer of this specific question on stack exchange : What does some reports have the same safetyreportid? It is stated that openfda has duplicates: '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'

However when we check at openfda site for the duplicate field description:

enter image description here

The site states that opeFDA shows only the most recent version (meaning there is no duplicates on the openFDA)
