YMMV. I've had them tell me "If its says OD-D its always D and never DE"

I have not had that experience in the last 2 years. I had two kids decide to go dairy free and was calling them constantly.

OU stopped certain products being bishul Yisroel due to covid accessibility issues, but did they ever announce it per product, or just took off the words from the label?

They were kashering the kitchen for pesach.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I read the subject. The video is definitely directly related to kashrus.

doesn't have any "Starbucks refreshers" on the list. Should I assume those are no good or just not updated?

There is an independent website called "Kosher Starbucks" which does not appear to be affiliated with any kashrus organization (or Starbucks itself) and which claims to have researched the products.

I have no information about the process they use in their research or any Rabbanim who they consulted with, but they claim that all the refreshers other than Matcha Lemonade are not kosher.
