Aminopyralid contaminated home garden

Asked July 16, 2016, 9:35 AM EDT

I inadvertently fertilized my garden with manure containing Aminopyralid (Forefront). The peas, green beans, tomatoes and peppers all failed to grow normally or died. However, the broccoli, kale, cabbage, onions and cucumbers show no effect and have grown well. Apparently these plant species are unaffected by the chemical. Are these vegetables safe for human consumption?
