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. orange zest (1 large orange)
1 tbsp. grated fresh ginger
2 tsp. honey
2 tsp. sesame oil
2 tsp. kosher salt
3/4 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 tbsp. flour
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove giblets and neck from chicken. Discard or cook separately.
Combine zest, ginger, honey, sesame oil and salt. Loosen chicken skin around breast, drumsticks and thighs. Spread half the orange-ginger mixture evenly under skin and remaining on outside of chicken. Place in roasting pan.
Bake at 425°F for 15 minutes. Reduce oven to 375°F and continue roasting 1 to 1 1/2 hours until internal temperature registers 180°F, measured at thickest part of the thigh. Remove from oven and let stand 10 to 15 minutes.
Tip chicken to allow juices to run into pan. Place chicken on serving platter or cutting board. Drain drippings from pan into a fat separator or a plastic bag set in a cup. Pour drippings into a small saucepan (if using a bag, snip one corner and drain drippings from bag, discarding fat that floats to top). Add broth to drippings and bring to a boil. In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice and flour, breaking up any lumps; add to saucepan. Bring sauce to a simmer, cook and stir for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened; season with salt and pepper to taste. Carve chicken and serve with orange sauce.
