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 Creative Twists on Thanksgiving

4 Creative Twists on Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving is a great time to put a new spin on traditions, especially if your gatherings might be smaller than usual. But hey, change can be the start of something wonderful! Throw a celebration full of new traditions that may have fewer people, but just as many memories.

1. Scale Down the Menu and Difficulty

Maybe it’s your first time preparing the roast yourself. Or maybe a whole turkey is too big for just you and the fam this year. Try roasting a chicken instead, so you can save time and money, and avoid burning your food or drowning in leftovers!


Tip: If you’re a newbie chef, the Oven Ready Roast Chicken is a foolproof way to go!

Bonus: Get crafty! Have a mask decorating competition for kids and adults. Buy plain masks and craft supplies to decorate them like a turkey.

2. Throw Out the Rules with Thanksgiving Brunch

Create your own playbook this year and don’t wait until the evening to get your feast on. Whip up a Thanksgiving brunch using the protein of your choice in any of these dishes.

Bonus: Host a mimosa recipe contest. Set up a drink station with different kinds of fruit juices, fruits and garnishes to mix and match.

3. Host a Potluck

Celebrating with neighbors instead of going out of town? Consider turning dinner into a potluck. Everyone can bring their favorite dish—and more hands mean less clean-up for you. If the weather is nice, you can even hold the potluck outside!


Stress-Saving Tip: Prep the dish the night before and bake it right before guests arrive, or drop it off at the host’s house with cooking instructions.

4. Make Room for Kidsgiving

We’re talking nuggets galore! Make sure to serve a few kid-friendly recipes, so even the fussiest eaters can enjoy Thanksgiving too.
