Default Hop Union problems

Has anyone else had issues with Hop Union's hops lately? The last bag of EKG whole hops I got from them had an unsettling amount of stems and leaves.

Nobody likes to have to pick stems and leaves!

Whoever processes the EKG for HopUnion has an interesting process. A lot of the 2012 batch seems to have been processed under the directive "If it's still green, kiln it some more".
