strange colored ribbon on images

Hi all,

I've had my K3 for about 10 months now. Last week, some strange colored ribbons began appearing on pictures occasionally. The images appear with pink or green, and it's visible both on the LCD screen on camera and after downloading to Lightroom. Any idea what this is or how to resolve it?

Sample from today attached.

Thanks much!

It's your card. Try formatting it. If that doesn't work, get a new one.

At least it's not a pink elephant.

A similar thing happened once with my K-S2. I re-formatted the card (in the camera) and it has not happened again. The card had error in it's file system so images wasn't saved properly.
