Pokemon Go Players are Getting Weird Notification, Someone Messed it Up

Pokemon Go players are reporting a new random push notification on their Pokemon Go app.

It seems like only iOS users are getting this notification “push test via csv w/ idfv file has crlf.”

This notification means: “Push notification test [listing the recipients] via comma-separated values with idfv. File has a Windows-specific of way of declaring new lines that maybe Linux won’t correctly interpret”

So it looks like someone is testing a format change of how they declare who should get notification, but something somewhere went wrong, or let’s just say it, someone messed it up. They thought they were testing in Beta but had accidentally switched to prod.
