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.

Ingredients Ingredients

Ingredients

2 small spaghetti squash

3 tbsp.olive oil

1/2 tsp.Italian Seasonings

1/2 tsp.salt

1/4 tsp.garlic powder

1/4 tsp.black pepper

1 cupcherry tomatoes, halved

1/4 cupstore-bought pesto

2 tbsp.toasted pine nuts, optional


Step 1

Step 1

Bake

Preheat oven to 400°F. Using a large knife, split the two squash in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to remove the seeds and pulp. Place cut side down on a foil lined baking sheet and add 1 cup of water. Brush the outside of the squash with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the point of a small knife can easily pierce the skin.

tip TIP

TIP: The best way to split open a squash is by inserting the tip of a chef’s knife into one end. Apply strong and even pressure on the knife, using it more like a splitter rather than slicing or carving.

Step 2

Saute

Chop the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and season with Italian seasonings, salt, garlic powder and black pepper. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the chicken chunks until golden and cooked through, about 7 to 8 minutes. The chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F.

tip TIP

TIP: Save time on prep and use PERDUE® Fresh Cuts™ Diced Chicken Breasts - no need to chop chicken!

Step 3

Rake

When the squash is done, use two forks to rake the flesh of each to create “spaghetti.” Transfer into a large bowl and reserve the emptied skins. Toss the spaghetti squash with the pesto, mixing to coat the strands well. Add the cooked chicken and cherry tomatoes, and toss to combine.
