Understanding Local Peak Values

I've attached a typical result from a face contact test. The loading face (not shown) is larger in diameter than the die face (shown). Loads are extremely high as is common in this application. I'm having trouble deciding if the high local peaks (400ksi+) often found radomly at vertex nodes can be ignored in favor of the results shown in the color chart. These appearent singularities are a common occurance especially on complex geometry.
