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 20 oz.can pineapple chunks
1 cupred bell pepper, chopped
4 oz.snow peas
4 scallions, sliced lengthwise into ribbons
6 tbsp.soy sauce
3 tbsp.brown sugar
2 tsp.ground ginger
1 tsp.red pepper flakes
cooked white rice or cauliflower rice, for serving
Lay out 4 large sheets of heavy-duty foil. Build each piece of foil with ½ cup pineapple chunks, ¼ cup red bell pepper and 5 to 6 snow peas. Divide the chicken between the 4 foil packets and then top with scallion ribbons.
TIP: Cut the chicken into smaller pieces, approximately 0.5" H x 1" W x 1" L. These packets can also be baked in an oven. Preheat the oven to 400°F and bake the packets for 15 to 20 minutes, until a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F.
In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, ground ginger and red pepper flakes. Spoon about 2 to 3 tablespoons of the sauce over the chicken and vegetables. Bring up the sides of foil until they’re 2 inches over the chicken and vegetables. Double fold over the top to seal. Fold in the ends.
Preheat a grill to medium heat. Place packets on grill and cover. Grill for 10 to 15 minutes, until chicken is done. Chicken is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F. Remove packets from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes.
To serve, scoop a serving of rice onto a plate. Carefully open the Grilled Hawaiian Chicken Foil Packets. Pour the chicken, vegetables and sauce over the rice and serve.
