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.

4 tbsp.jerk seasoning
3 tbsp.olive oil
2 tbsp.lime juice
1 tbsp.low-sodium soy sauce
4 cupsromaine lettuce, shredded
4 tbsp.refrigerated jarred blue cheese dressing
1 cupcubed mango
1/2 cupdiced red bell pepper
1/2 cupchopped red onion
2 tbsp.chopped cilantro
In a resealable plastic bag, mix jerk seasoning, olive oil, molasses, lime juice and soy sauce. Add chicken tenderloins to bag with marinade. Toss to coat chicken completely and refrigerate 20 to 30 minutes.
TIP: To keep the molasses from sticking to your measuring spoon, measure your oil first; then your molasses will slip right off the spoon.
Heat lightly greased grill or grill pan to medium heat. Remove chicken from marinade and grill 10 to 15 minutes, watching closely to avoid burning. Chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and meat thermometer inserted in center reaches 170°F. Remove chicken from grill and let rest 2 to 3 minutes before carving.
To assemble, toss shredded romaine with blue cheese dressing and place on serving platter. Scatter mango, red bell pepper and red onion across lettuce. Top salad with grilled chicken slices and garnish with chopped cilantro.
