FastaAlternateReferenceMaker giving error

I am trying to run FastaAlternateReferenceMaker using an interval file but I am getting this warning whether I use the interval file or not.

java -jar /local/scratch/aparihar/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T FastaAlternateReferenceMaker -R /PlasmoDB-24_Pfalciparum3D7_Genome.fasta -o Sample1.fasta -L Internal.list -V diploid.allsites.filtered.majorallele.vcf

where the Internal.list looks like this -

It does create fasta file , but throws this warning -

Should I ignore this? I am uncertain, as I do not have any other means to confirm if the alternate fasta file created is correct.
