May contain labels?

Hello!
So my new year's resolution is to be a vegan and it's really easy since I've been vegan for all my main meals just none vegan junk food but this time it was much easier for me to switch to healthy and vegan junk food. Now here's a question, do you still buy and eat foods that just say May Contain Milk, eggs, etc I personally do because where I live vegan stuff isn't very easy to find but I was just wondering other peoples thoughts on it.

If I look at the ingredients and it doesn't have any non-vegan items but states "may contain...", I'll still purchase. I'm pretty sure it's because it's processed in the same factory as non-vegan items.

The "may contain" labels just serve to protect food companies from lawsuits by people who could claim to experience dangerous allergic reactions to traces of dairy, nuts, etc. Eating foods that "may contain traces of egg" is still vegan; the amount of egg material (if any) is miniscule.
