vetch seeds in rye berries

My latest bag of rye berries included some vetch seeds scattered throughout it.  Should I be concerned?  Is this common?

on the other side of the ocean. Evidently the two seeds get along together. Never had any problem, but yes: it's very annoying.

So, do you mill it with the rye or pick it out.  So far I'm picking.  So far I've picked out .25 oz (7g).  There's probably that or more left in my 25 lbs of rye.  I know that amounts to only about 1 oz at most but I know little to nothing about vetch.  Is it bitter, sweet, unnoticeable or what?
