Davar Charif-Biblical or Rabbinical

Is the concept of a Davar Charif a Biblical or Rabbinical concept?[1]

Some Poskim[2] rule that the concept of a Davar Charif is Biblical, and hence when cooking a Davar Charif in a non-Ben Yomo meat pot the food is Biblically considered to have meat taste.[3] Accordingly, in a case of doubt, the rule of Safek Derabanan Lekula would not apply to a Davar Charif. Other Poskim[4] however rule it is only Rabbincially the concept of a Davar Charif is Rabbinical, and hence when cooking a Davar Charif in a non-Ben Yomo meat pot the food is only Rabbinically considered to have meat taste. Accordingly, in a case of doubt, the rule of Safek Derabanan Lekula would apply. Other Poskim[5] leave this matter in question.
