Removing rows from a cell array

I am having trouble removing rows from a cell array. I have a much larger cell array, but a portion of it is shown as follows:

ans =
'11' '111213424137S' '6/7/2012 7:50:01 AM' [150.6] [2000.58]
'11' '111213424137S' '6/14/2012 11:14:07 AM' [1407.34] [0]
'11' '111213424141S' '6/7/2012 7:58:06 AM' [-134.45] [134.45]
'11' '111213424141S' '6/14/2012 11:10:08 AM' [200.08] [0]

Now I want to remove the rows where a zero appears in the fifth column of the cell array. In this case I want to remove rows 2 and 4. I have tried using a for loop to accomplish this, but the dimensions of the matrix always change. I have tried using cellfun also,

MasterSAS(any(cellfun(@(x) x(5) == 0, MasterSAS),2), :) = [];

But this clearly does not work. Any clarification or help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
