When is Cross Pollination Between Vegetables a Problem?

I am planting vegetables in 5 gallon plastic containers, I do not want to have problems with cross pollination. I have tomatoes next to bell peppers, then chili peppers close by. Is there a problem?

Hardiness Zone: 8b

Cross pollination is not a problem, unless you want to use the seeds from this years' crop to plant next year. It will not alter the genetic structure of the existing plant; but will create "hybrid" seeds.
