A7iii import into lightroom introduces pink line on raw files?

Hi All,

I have a few Sony cameras (a7ii and RX100m5) and this only shows up on the A7iii. Sometimes a photo being imported into lightroom will have a pink line on it. See photos below. I turned on the option in lightroom to include a copy of the import into a separate drive and directory. This copy also shows the pink like. But when viewed on the original SD card there is no pink line. I can remove the photo from lightroom and import it again and most of the time the pink line won't show up. I've seen this pink line before on about 4 or 5 other photos out of 100's. This the first time I decided to investigate further.

Anyone else seen this? Lightroom issue or PC hardware?

Seems like I can rule out the camera as the original file on the SD card does not have the pink line. But's it's odd that I have only seen the issue from imported files from the A7iii. Might be just a numbers thing as I use that camera the most.
