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

4 tbsp.olive oil

3 tbsp.fresh oregano leaves

1 tbsp.chopped garlic

3 lemons

1/4 tsp.salt

1/8 tsp.black pepper


Step 1

Step 1

Butterfly

To butterfly a chicken, place it breast-side down on a cutting board. Use kitchen shears to cut straight up both sides of the backbone from the cavity to the neck. Remove the backbone and save for chicken stock. Open the chicken like a book and flip it over so it’s breast-side up. Press down firmly on the breasts until you hear a pop. Tie the feet together with butcher twine to make the chicken easier to turn on the grill.

Marinate

In a glass baking dish, whisk together the olive oil, oregano and garlic plus the zest and juice of 1 lemon. Add the chicken and turn to coat. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 8 hours.

Step 3

Step 3

Grill

Heat a lightly greased grill or grill pan to medium heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade, letting the excess drip away. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Place the chicken on the grill, skin side down, and slowly grill until the skin becomes a crispy golden brown, about 15 minutes. Turn the chicken over, close the grill cover and continue grilling until the chicken is cooked through, another 30 minutes. The chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F. Remove the chicken from the grill and let rest it 10 minutes before carving.

Serve

While the chicken is resting, cut the remaining 2 lemons in half and place on the hot grill. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes until the lemons have softened and have grill marks. Cut up the chicken into 8 pieces and place on a serving platter. Garnish with grilled lemons on the side. Squeeze grilled lemon juice over the chicken as desired.
