Thinset mortar squeezed up into expansion joints


While laying the 1/4 hardibacker on top of 3/4 " plywood in a thinset bed the mortar was squeezed into the expansion joint between one wall and the hardibacker leaving no expansion joint along that wall. Should I cut this mortar out? This is only the case on one wall. If this should be removed what would be the easiest way to remove without damaging surrounding area.
