Logstash - undefined method 'to_msgpack' for 0.2e2:BigDecimal

Hey all,

Recently have been doing some JSON parsing of messages and it appears that every once in awhile, we come across a message that just breaks logstash and crashes it with a fatal error. I am using the s3-sns-sqs plugin for input. It appears this error relates to my json parsing within the filter section which I will paste below:

filter {
mutate {
add_field => {
"key" => "%{[@metadata][s3][object_key]}"
}
}

json {
    source => "message"
    target => "message"
    skip_on_invalid_json => "true"
}

json {
    source => "[message][cont_meta_data]"
    target => "[message][cont_meta_data]"
    skip_on_invalid_json => "true"
}

}

Error stack trace:

Is there a good way to capture an error like the above and tell LogStash to ignore and continue processing the remaining files? Would a dead letter queue be of some use here to catch any errors like the above instead of halting the process entirely?
