ortho ant killer and potatoes

Zone 76655 | Dwane added on April 23, 2018 | Answered

I planted potato eyes and with out thinking sprinkled Ortho ant killer on dirt close to potatoes. Could that make them unsafe to eat?

It should be out of the soil long before they are ready to eat, but I would definitely not do this in the future. Depending on how close you do this to harvest, it could make them unsafe.
