Q.Weed Killer Mist on Tomatoes

Anonymous added on March 20, 2014 | Answered

While spaying my yard with Weed Be Gon Sunday, mist got on my tomato plants. The leaves turned under just a little. I didn’t realize it until Monday. I hosed the plants down when I noticed it. It is raining today (Tuesday), dropping 2 inches. Will I be able to eat the tomatoes produced from the plants?

The fact that it was merely a misting that hit the tomatoes and you both hosed it down and the plant received rain is a strong indication that the fruits should be fine, as it's safe to say that it has been washed off. However, it would still be a good idea to thoroughly wash off the tomatoes, as with any fruit or veggie, before eating them.
