Ortho Bug B Gon Max question

Page 1 of 2  
My wife inadvertantly used Ortho Bug B Gon Max spray on a row of lettuce and mustard. The bottle does not list this particular vegetable at all on the outside of the label, and the inside of the label has been damaged to the point where I can't read it. Does anyone have any information about using this on lettuce and mustard? Should I destroy the plants, or can they be eaten after a certain amount of time?

Doesn't matter about labeling.
I wouldn't eat them.
Neither should you.

Labeling does matter. It is a federal law violation to use any controlled pesticide not in accordance with the label.
If the label defines how the product can be used on that crop and the instructions are followed there should not be a problem.

The label is partially destroyed...
Ahh, the website is working this morning. Alas, the info there is not as detailed as what is on the label, go figure? Guess it's phone call time.....

Even better, go to http://www.ortho.com or look for contact information on what's left of the product label and look for assistance there.

Don't be ridiculous. Why would anyone go to the manufacturer's site for information about their products? If you can't contribute something useful, please go away.

Don't be ashamed! Obviously, if you've read all the post, he tried the website anyway. I check company websites quite often for different products. Some can be quite helpful. You never know til you try!

I did. The web site generated errors, and I was unable to find what I was looking for there.

Hunt down the label on the web..call the manufacturer..read another label on a product at the store. If the product is not made for the plants destroy the plants.

I think I'll have to call them, I was hoping someone here might actually know something usefull. So far, your advice to call them is the best advice I've received :). The website generates errors, and I can't find what I'm looking for there.

Ah, the website is up. And they don't have the vegetable list there, so I called them. The only information the gentleman could give me was they could not recommend consuming any non-listed vegetable. Suckage. Well, look on the bright side. I have 15 pepper plants left over that I need a place for - now I have room for them LOL.
Moral of the story - don't let your wife get near your garden with bug spray!
