Label rules.

The federal government’s Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCA) requires manufacturers to indicate “soy” on labels of foods that contain any soy product.

The wording “may contain” soy, while not regulated, is a warning sign to avoid the product just to be safe. Note that food companies are not under a legal obligation to inform consumers about the risk of cross contamination (although many do).
