Is Ortho Weed B Gon dangerous??

6 years ago

Hey everyone I am new to this forum and I thought it was a good time to join now since I have a very important question to ask. I have been a organic vegetable garden for the last 4 years or so and while working outside today a family member of mine sprayed Ortho Weed B Gon (not Max spray) around my berry bushes, peachs, plums and cherry tress to prevent weeds from over taking them.

Problem is that after a small Google search I've found out people list this product as a carcinogen and now I have no idea what to do. I tried washing it way with some water but I felt like that was making it worse :/.

Is there anything I can do to keep the plants safe from absorbing the chemicals or is it pointless? I really have no idea what to do. all the plants that have been sprayed produce well and I don't want to lose them...but at the same time I don't want to poison my family.

Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!
