Is Diatomaceous Earth 85% safe to use in gardens and on vegetables?

Can I dust this on tomatoes and other garden food to control ants as long as I wash it off before eating?


Diatomaceous Earth 85% in not labeled to be used on edible vegetation. We carry do Fertilome Dipel dust and Sevin dust which are both labeled to be used in vegetable gardens.
