Kashrus information on SILK brand ALMOND MILKS and SOY MILKS

September 25, 2017 from the OU in response to a reader's question:

The Silk non dairy Milks are labeled OUD, but in fact, its true status, at the present time, is DE (Dairy Equipment).
What does DE mean? Parve products made with heat on dairy equipment may be eaten after meat, but not with meat.
Some kashrus agencies use a DE symbol, but the OU has chosen not to use a DE designation because it is felt it may be confusing to the kosher consumer. Also, to be a true DE product, the equipment must be properly cleaned of residue after dairy production, and that level of cleanliness is sometimes difficult to maintain and guarantee.
Please note that it is possible that the manufacturer will reformulate this product and add a true dairy ingredient. You will not be able to know this, since the OUD kosher symbol will remain the same. We recommend that you call the OU office every 3 months to reconfirm the DE status of this product.


Kashrus information on SILK brand ALMOND MILKS and SOY MILKS

August 18, 2016 - from COR Detroit and confirmed by the OU:

SILK brand ALMOND MILKS and SOY MILKS with an OU-D bear a D due to dairy equipment (DE). Products manufactured on dairy equipment may be eaten after meat without a waiting period, but not with meat. The OU cautions that even where it states that a product is DE, the OU does not supervise the cleaning of the equipment between dairy and non-dairy productions, and also that the DE status should be periodically reconfirmed, since manufacturers frequently reformulate their products.
