At Perdue Farms, your health and well-being are our top concerns. In the past few days, we’ve experienced heavier than normal call volume as customers reach out with concerns about sourcing of our products and quality control measures we’ve put in place to guarantee the freshness and safety of the foods we ship. We want you to know that we hear you, we thank you for reaching out and we want to reassure you in every way possible that we’re putting your health, safety and well-being first.
In light of concerns over Coronavirus (COVID-19), we’d like to share the following:
COVID-19 is Not Considered a Food-Borne Pathogen
Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID-19 is most commonly spread between those who are in close contact with each other, and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It may also be possible for a person to contract COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching his or her own mouth, nose or possibly eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. We have strict biosecurity protocols throughout our farms and entire supply chain, including proven sanitation methods which minimize the risk of contaminated surfaces.
Perdue Farms Takes Food Safety Protocols Seriously
We have the highest standards of biosecurity and food safety, and fully sanitize our facilities every 24 hours. We are closely monitoring affected areas and reiterating our biosecurity policy to help minimize the potential to transport possibly contaminated surfaces. The staff at the onsite Wellness Centers at 19 of our facilities are trained on how to protect our associates from, and identify and respond to, symptoms of COVID-19. These professionals follow standard operating procedures as defined by the CDC for infectious diseases. The Wellness Centers are available to all associates and their families. We are taking every precaution to protect our associates, communities, customers and business partners, and ensure the continuity of our business.
All of our animals are born/hatched, raised, harvested and processed in the U.S. As with most large businesses, we source some (non-food) elements of our supply chain from countries outside the U.S. We are closely monitoring affected areas and reiterating our biosecurity policy to help minimize the potential to transport possibly contaminated surfaces.
Thank you for being a loyal Perdue Farms customer. Please reach out to our Consumer Relations team, should you have any additional questions or concerns.

4 cups leftover cooked, shredded PERDUE® Fresh Whole Chicken with Giblets
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
1 tbsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
3 tbsp. cream cheese
2 cups cooked white rice
2 boxes (10-ounce) frozen broccoli florets, thawed and drained well
1 cup crushed butter crackers or potato chips
Preheat oven to 400°F. Shred leftover chicken into bite-sized pieces.
TIP: Start with a PERDUE® OVEN READY Whole Seasoned Roaster Bone-In Breast (3 lb.) for an easy source of leftovers.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute. Whisk in the milk, dry mustard, salt and pepper. Continue whisking until the milk mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the cheddar cheese and cream cheese until melted.
In a large bowl, combine the rice, broccoli florets, chicken and cheese sauce.
TIP: Be sure to thaw and dry your frozen broccoli well to keep your cheese sauce thick and creamy while the casserole bakes.
Spray a 9” by 13” baking dish with cooking spray. Pour the chicken mixture into the baking dish. Top with crushed butter crackers or potato chips. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top. For a crispier finish, turn the oven up to broil for the last 5 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
