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 cup fresh, shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
3 vine ripened tomatoes, deseeded and diced
1 small onion, finely diced
3 cloves garlic, very finely diced
3 tbsp. Italian leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
juice of one lemon
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp. stone ground mustard
1/8 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing
6 cups fresh Romaine hearts, shredded
Make Parmesan chips by preheating oven to 375°F. Draw four 4-inch circles onto parchment paper and then place upside down onto baking sheet. Sprinkle some of the Parmesan cheese within the circles that show through and place in oven. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes until cheese has melted and lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool to become crisp.
TIP: Can be prepared with store-bought bruschetta. This recipe may easily serve 2 people instead of 4 people by using half the quantity of all ingredients.
Make bruschetta by mixing tomatoes, onions, garlic, and parsley along with lemon juice, olive oil, and some of the remaining Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
To prepare the chicken, grill 3 minutes on each side or until it has reached an internal temperature of 170°F.
For the dressing, mix the mustard into a store bought creamy Caesar dressing. In a large mixing bowl, combine lettuce with the dressing and last remaining Parmesan cheese.
To serve, equally divide salad and place in the center of 4 plates. Place 3 small piles of bruschetta around the outside of the lettuce on each plate. Slice the chicken breasts and fan out. Garnish with Parmesan chip on each plate.
