Default Are Apex soil and veg plants SAFE after fire?

I woke up that morning with a nasty sore throat. A couple of baby chicks in
an outside pen died.

I was not in the evacuation area, BUT, my yard was full of smoke, which the
rain precipitated into my yard.

The fall garden looks the best this year EVER. Where or how would I find
out if there is an affordable independent lab to test the soil and veggies?
I need to know if my longtime organic garden was tainted by the toxins in
the smoke from the fire.

Anyone have any ideas?
