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.


Host an Amazing Party for the Big Game

February 2017

Host an Amazing Party for the Big Game

The culmination of football season is a spirited American tradition. It’s also the once-a-year opportunity we can snack all-day in front of the TV guilt free! So, paint your face, plan out your bathroom breaks (um, you can’t miss those commercials) and cheer on your favorite team.

Here are a few tips for how to host an amazing party for the big game.

Guest List

  • The more the merrier, but make sure you can seat everyone with a clear view of the TV. Don't invite 50 people if you have room for only 15.
  • If friends ask whether they can bring something…don't be afraid to say YES! Most people would like to help out, and by giving them specific items to bring, you don't end up with 12 bags of corn chips and no guacamole. If you have the menu planned, then ask guests to bring wine, beer or soda.
  • Have a pregame show. Ask a couple of close friends to come over early and help with the setup. This way, you can spend time with them before other guests arrive while getting help moving those tables and chairs.

Plan the Menu

  • Choose easy-to-eat, finger-friendly foods…think foods to eat while holding a beer. But you can also serve a one-pot meal, such as chili or gumbo, at halftime.
  • Now is the time to get creative with your menu. Try a new twist on classic recipes such as:
  • Don't lay all of the food out at once. Start with chips and Creamy Buffalo Chicken Dip, and then add more to the snack area every quarter. Work your way up through the Sriracha Chicken and Brown Sugar Bacon Bites and on to the Chicken Celebration Sliders. Around the fourth quarter, bring out the sweets…for a sweet victorious ending to the party.
  • Have a selection of beers to reflect the two competing teams, either by label color or region.
  • If using plastic glasses, use magic markers to label whose glass is whose.

The Setup

  • Get rid of the clutter to make plenty of space for a crowd. No one wants to feel like a sardine.
  • Have lots of floor pillows for those who just can't sit still or want to be closer to the food.
  • Make sure all of the seating is facing or in view of the television. That way, no one misses that winning touchdown.
  • Place snacks in strategic spots around the seating so people can reach them easily from any seat.
  • Position trash receptacles around the room so people can toss their empties and not leave them on the floor.
  • People love to wander, especially during a close game. If you have multiple televisions…turn them on! That way, people can keep up with the score no matter what room they are in.
  • Decorate with team colors. Put up banners or team-colored table decorations. Place colored pom-poms around for fans to use while cheering on their favorite teams.

Games

  • Have a football pool. Create or print out a big board with a 100-square grid. Write one team name across the top and the other team name down the side. Have participants place their name in the squares of their choice until the grid is full. Once it is full, randomly draw numbers from 1–10 to write across the top and down the side of the grid. The winners are the squares that intersect with the last digit of each team's score at the end of each quarter.
  • Rate your favorite commercials. Pass out cards for everyone to write their comments. See which commercials get the most votes.
  • Have foam rubber footballs for people to throw around without knocking over your favorite lamp.
  • Make commercial bingo cards. Instead of numbers, fill in the squares with commercial topics, celebrities or brands. Cross them off when the commercial comes up.
