The 2023-01-02 openFDA json file (https://open.fda.gov/apis/device/recall/download/) is missing searchable fields.

For example, the field cfres_id is missing (was available in the 2022 json files).

Is this file somehow corrupted?

Sorry for the late reply here, but it looks like this was a temporary issue - the field is available on the download files now. Let me know if you're still having issues.
