Halacha - Kitniyos accident
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

According to Halacha kitniyos is much more lenient than chometz and is batel if it is the minority of the mixture, which is obviously the case here. While the minhag is to be machmir and use separate utensils for kitniyos even when it is permitted such as a baby's formula, under cases of significant loss one may rely on the basic Halacha that it is permitted.

This applies if the soy oil was certified Kosher for Pesach by a reliably Sefardi hechsher to insure that it contains nothing other than soy oil, however if it had no Pesach hashgacha it is not permitted to eat on Pesach. I have heard from a Sefardi Rav active in kashrus that even today it is very common to find kernels of wheat mixed in with soybeans, and soy oil is likely to be chometz and not just kitniyos.
