French Fries in Oil Used to Fry Meat

Question:
Must one wait the requisite time between meat and milk if he ate something parve like french fries that was fried in oil previously used to fry chicken or meat

Answer:

A pareve dish cooked in oil that previously was used to fry meat is considered a “tavshil shel basar” a “meaty dish” [as opposed to meat itself or a dish with actual meat in it]. According to the strict halacha this would not require one to wait 6 hours, however the Shulchan Aruch already brings that it is customary to wait the requisite time for this as well.
