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.

1/2 cup olive oil
1 tbsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 tbsp. fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 tbsp. fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 pound fingerling potatoes, halved
1/4 pound carrots, peeled and halved lengthwise
1/4 pound beets (red or golden)
2 large shallots, peeled and halved
6 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 cup chicken broth
Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, parsley, rosemary, thyme, lemon zest and juice. Brush 2 tablespoons of the herb oil over the skin of the chicken. Rub 2 tablespoons of the herb oil inside the cavity. Season chicken, inside and out, with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Place the lemon halves inside the cavity. Tuck the wings under the chicken and tie the legs together with kitchen twine. Place the chicken on a rack in a large roasting pan.
In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, carrots, beets, shallots and garlic cloves. Toss with remaining herb oil mixture. Season the vegetables with remaining salt and pepper. Arrange the vegetables around the chicken in a single layer and then add the broth to the roasting pan.
Roast for 15 minutes, and then reduce the heat to 350°F. Baste the chicken with the pan juices every 20 minutes. Roast until the chicken juices run clear, the legs move easily when wiggled and a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh registers 170°F. This will take about 1¼ to 2 hours for a 3- to 4-pound broiler or 2½ to 3 hours for a 5- to 7-pound roaster. Remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
Transfer the chicken to a serving platter. Arrange the vegetables around the chicken. Serve the chicken with the pan juices.
