Zesty BBQ Drumsticks
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.

1 tbsp.ground espresso or coffee
1 tbsp.Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning with Pepper
1/2 tbsp.ground chili powder or ancho chili powder
1 tbsp.brown sugar
3 large scallions
1/2 small seedless watermelon, cut into ¾-inch pieces, about 3 cups
1 medium cucumber, quartered lengthwise and sliced
1 mango, cubed
3 tbsp.fresh mint, chopped, plus sprigs for garnish
In a small dish, combine the espresso, adobo seasoning, chili powder and sugar. Rub the spice mixture all over the chicken pieces and let them stand for 15 minutes.
Preheat an oiled grill or grill pan over medium heat. Place the chicken pieces on the grill. Cover and grill them, turning frequently, until browned on all sides and cooked through, about 35 minutes. Chicken is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part reaches 180° F. Transfer chicken to a serving platter. Grill the scallions for 4 minutes, remove them from the grill and then chop them into ½-inch pieces.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the zest of ½ lime, the juice of 1 whole lime and the honey. Stir until blended. Toss in watermelon, cucumber, mango, mint and the chopped scallions. Set aside until ready to serve.
Serve the chicken breasts with the mango melon salad on the side.
TIP: Taste and adjust the amount of honey, depending on the sweetness of your fruit.
