The Latest on Oreo Cookies

July 14, 2017 from the OU Daf HaKashrus Vol. 22 / No. 9:

At the present time the following Oreo Sandwich Cookies do not contain dairy ingredients, though they are manufactured on dairy equipment:

  • Original Oreo Sandwich Cookies
  • Oreo Double Stuf Sandwich Cookies
  • Oreo Original Mega Stuff Sandwich Cookie
  • Mini Original Oreo Sandwich Cookies
  • Chocolate Oreo Sandwich Cookies
  • Golden Oreo Sandwich Cookies
  • Triple Double Oreo Sandwich Cookies
  • Oreo Thins Sandwich Cookies

The equipment is not necessarily cleaned before the production of these cookies, and there may be a small amount of dairy residue present. Nonetheless, the dairy component would be minimal, and from a Halachic perspective, the dairy residue is nullified (botel bishishim) and of no consequence. The bottom line of all this is that these cookies may be consumed after meat and poultry, but not simultaneously.
Please bear in mind that the manufacturer may choose in the future to reformulate these products and add dairy ingredients. Since these products already bear OUD symbols, formulation changes would not be reflected in the OUD logo. As such, we recommend that consumers check regularly with our office to confirm the status of these items.
