What is wrong with my Tomatoes?

My tomatoes have been growing fine and looking healthy they are all 18 to 24 inches tall some have small green tomatoes on them.
I have noticed in the last week all the new growth has just shriveled up see picture. Three are 3 different species in 2 different beds. We just came out of colder rainy weather into 4 or 5 days of hot 90 degree weather. But we have been watering regularly so it cant be that. Never seen anything like this before and have been growing tomatoes for 30 some years anyone have ideas?

Herbicide damage.

Either drift from weed management sprays or contaminated organic materials.

For the latter, see

Here is a link that might be useful: clopyralid herbicide contaminated soil

aaahhhhh We saw a lawn service taking care of the empty house next door. I bet you they sprayed on a windy day and my plants got hit. Thank You for the quick response time to replant.

I have the same thing happening with mine. Are you using compost? I have a compost pile (for the first time) that I've added horse manure & cow manure. I apparently did not let my compost "finish" enough before I added handfuls of compost to some of my tomatoes and this is what is happening. The manure has herbicide in it that is killing the tomatoes. So sad (mostly for my compost pile).
