What are they treated with?
Persistance of chemicals will vary. I recently read about it but cannot recall the source, except that it was a university.
Plant it and they will come.

Also are you mulching a vegetable garden? Whether it is safe to eat is different than whether it will harm the plants.

Your best bet will be to read the label very carefully. It won't say anything specific about mulching with clippings, but look for things like whether it can be applied under fruit trees, or when you can seed or re-treat, or consequences of drift. (most chemical labels are written with an agricultural focus unfortunately for us Glare )
