Alternaria in tomato

My kids ate some of the fruit, what should I do? We found our tomato plants have Alternaria from the diagnosis found on your site. They are planted in planters with strawberries. The strawberry plants look ok, but the strawberries seemed deformed, very small and ripen very fast. My toddlers have been eating what few strawberries we’ve had. Now I am concerned that since the tomato plant has their fungi, so does the soil, and it has spread to the strawberry plants. Knowing that my kids have eaten fruit possibly infested with a fungi makes me worried that they have been exposed to it. What should I do for them (kids)? We are throwing out the plants/soil/planters and starting fresh. I’m just worried about my kids’ health. Thank you!!!

I would contact Poison control for this issue.
