The following kashruth advisory is from the Orthodox Union on April 15, 2005.

The Orthodox Union requires the use of the D symbol on products that contain dairy ingredients.
Generally, a product that bears an OU symbol without a "D" can be assumed to be pareve. Nonetheless, the kashruth department of the Orthodox Union strongly recommends that consumers review the ingredient panel of products that are labeled OU (without a "D") before concluding that the item is actually pareve. The Orthodox Union certifies over 500,000 different labels, and in rare instances, the "D" may be omitted because of manufacturer errors. Though such mislabeling is usually spotted very quickly, it has not been possible to maintain perfect control over this situation.
Dairy ingredients include the following: Milk, Yogurt, Cheese, Cream, Whey, Lactose, Casein Or Caeseinate
