I am using the Taxonomy CSV import/export module to import and export taxonomy from my local installation to a fresh install on the staging. I export it on local, and import it using the same settings on staging. However, for each entry it imports, it throws an error:

Notice: Undefined variable: format in _taxonomy_csv_vocabulary_import_process() (line 421 of /var/www/vhosts/example.com/drupal-7.34/sites/all/modules/taxonomy_csv/import/taxonomy_csv.import.api.inc).

However, the import is successful. Does anyone else encounter this? Is is safe to ignore it?
