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.

Ingredients Ingredients


1 ( 7.5-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature

2 large eggs

1 cup chicken stock (or reserved pasta water), divided

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1/2 cup chopped cooked ham

8 oz. pasta, cooked

Step 1

Whisk the cream cheese, eggs and 1/2 cup chicken stock or pasta water together in a large bowl until smooth and lump free. Add the parmesan and set aside.

Step 2

In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the PERDUE® PERFECT PORTIONS® Chicken and season with salt and pepper. Sauté until browned and cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Chicken is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.

Step 3

To the same skillet, add the ham and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes. Pour the cream cheese mixture into the pan while stirring. Continue to stir gently for another minute while adding the chicken stock (1/4 cup at a time) until eggs have cooked and sauce has thickened. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and toss to combine well.

Step 4

Plate the chicken over the pasta and spoon a bit of the sauce over the chicken.
