"Art is already bound" error when trying to import updated variable CSV file in illustrator

I have a group of restaurant menus that have the prices filled in using variables.
The price file is CSV.
The purpose is to use a single price file to populate prices on multiple menus and to be able to quickly update the prices.
The initial variable library import worked fine, but now that I have updated the price list I am unable to reimport the list. I get a text box asking if I want to overwrite the current values (yes) and then it gives me an error message saying:
"This art is already bound to the same type of variable."
and refuses to update.
