From The O/U: Chocolate Chunk Chia Bites (by Eat Chia)

The Chocolate Chunk Chia Bites produced by Eat Chia are mislabeled.  The product contains chocolate, manufactured on Dairy equipment and erroneously bears an O/U symbol, not the appropriate O/U D (dairy) designation.  However, the product does not contain dairy ingredients.  Some Kashrus agencies use a DE symbol (for dairy equipment), but the O/U 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 clean-up is sometimes difficult to maintain and guarantee.  DE products may be eaten after meat, but may not be eaten together with or cooked with meat products.  Future packaging will be revised.
