Leananshidex posted about this in the cats forum (thank you!).
This is very recent and sometimes recall info comes out slowly in dribs and drabs. The company involved sold these products wholesale for use in human and animal food. There's no information yet about what companies have used this product in manufacturing foods. If you find soy flour or meal as an ingredient in pet food or treats (or your own food) call the company to find out if they used Thumb Oilseed Producers' Cooperative products.
I found no soy flour or meal in my own pets' food but had a bag of Canine Carryout treats I take to the shelter. It listed soy flour as the third ingredient, so this stuff may be out there. (I'm NOT saying Canine Carryout is contaminated, I didn't check. It was a small amount so I just threw it out to be safe.)

Once again, instead of waiting for the media to make a story out of a recall, just check the FDA's website from time to time and learn about recalls as they happen instead of finding out only after the press feels its a story to run.:
Recalls, Market Withdrawals, & Safety Alerts
You can check by the many categories including animal products.
Not only will you find recalls but also product the manufacture withdrew from the market for some health/safety reason.
