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.

Big Ideas for a Small Christmas

December 2020

Big Ideas for a Small Christmas

The holiday season will be a little different this year, but “different” can mean “memorable.” Small gatherings create big memories—they’re more intimate and often mean more quality time and deeper connections. We’re sharing a few ideas so you can feel the Christmas magic no matter how you celebrate!

Cheesy chicken bacon bombs

1. Make an Easy, Grab-and-Go Spread

If you’re having a small holiday get-together, serve your guests individual dishes or bite-sized foods.

Tip: Use disposable toothpicks or appetizer forks to cut down on cleanup.

Modern Classics

2. Throw a Virtual Holiday Party

  • Hold your gift exchange online. Each person takes a turn opening presents and showing them to everyone else. This will only work if your gifts arrive before the party, so make sure to send them early!
  • Host an ugly sweater party. Everyone can wear their tackiest sweater and vote for their favorite in an online poll.
  • Indulge your inner artist in a virtual cookie-decorating party. Bake cookies or purchase plain ones to decorate, or send out the recipes for sugar cookies and icing a couple of weeks before the party for anyone who wants to make their own.
  • Show off your Christmas trees in a Christmas tree party where everyone flaunts their decked-out evergreens. Let friends and family cast their votes online, then declare a winner.
  • Set up a virtual cook-along with your family members.
    • Organize a video conference where you can make your favorite dishes. There are a few Christmas staples that everyone makes, but let’s see how original you can get! This year is the perfect opportunity to add a unique twist.

Care Meal

3. Start a New Tradition

  • Make a care meal for a loved one to show them how much they mean to you.
  • Dance the day away with a kid-friendly, Fruit-a-saurus Conga Line party. Make a playlist of holiday tunes, bake some nuggets and thread them on skewers with fruit for a snack grown-ups will love too!
    • Tip: Cut off the pointed ends of the skewers to make sure it’s safer for kids.
  • Hold a Christmas game night. Many popular boardgames are now available online, so you can play with friends and family from all over the world!
  • Have a Christmas movie night. Put on some holiday classics or modern favorites while munching on popcorn and Christmas candy.
    • Tip: Crush up some candy canes and sprinkle them over your popcorn if you’re feeling extra festive!
