A Kosher Conundrum

If you keep Kosher, these three pictures are remarkably confusing:

For those not in the know, the outer box shows that the cookies are OU Parve. That is, the cookies contain no dairy products. The outer box also shows that the packets will have OU Parve printed on them. But the inner packets themselves, which have no ingredients on them, are marked as OU D. Where the D stands for dairy.

So which is? Are the cookies parve or dairy? Can I eat them after a burger or not?

Luckily, the good people at the OU Kosher Hotline were there to help:

They are currently parave but company is transitioning to dairy

So there you have it, despite the fact that the packets are labeled dairy, the cookies are actually parve.

Oy, it pains me to think that these cookies are going to be transitioning to diary status. No word yet from the OU as to whether they are going diary because of a recipe change, or for other reasons.
