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

If the label defines how the product can be used on that crop and the
instructions are followed there should not be a problem.
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 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
