If I see this correctly, there is nothing to take care of: Stackage nightly
and LTS both ship GHC 8.0.2, and that contains containers When a
new GHC is released and that ships with a new version of containers, it
will be on Stackage. Apart from that, there is nothing you can do: Stackage
is there to have a consistent set of packages, so containers is not even in
because it ships with GHC.

That's at least my understanding...
