Q:

Empire brand cold cuts come tightly wrapped in a sealed plastic which is, in turn, inside a container that has a lid.  If I remove the cold cuts and sealed plastic from the container without breaking the seal on the plastic, can I use the container for dairy or pareve?

A:


The OU informs us that in the Empire factory the outer container never comes in contact with meat, and therefore you may choose to use it for dairy or pareve as long as you make sure to not let any meat come in contact with it in your home.
