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.

Tips for Making a Care Meal

February 2017

Tips for Making a Care Meal

Here are a few tips for showing just how much you care.

Be Classically Nourishing

  • Choose healthy, hearty dishes that are packed with maximum flavor and nutrition.
  • This is the time for familiar comfort food, not the time to try out that newest trendy recipe.
  • Keep in mind who will be eating your care meal. Children have a different palate than mom and dad or even grandma. Make sure you can satisfy everyone.
  • Check for food allergies to make sure everyone can enjoy your care meal.
  • Always ask whether there is something the recipient can’t eat. Sometimes diets change because of circumstances such as illness or nursing.

Make a Complete Meal

  • Make a complete meal with side dishes. Some great combinations could be:
  • Don’t forget dessert. A plate of cookies, a pan of brownies or even a homemade pie says you care about the details.
  • Make enough to have leftovers. It’s always nice to get a few meals out of a care package.
  • Throw in a couple of quick grab-and-go snacks that the recipient can eat right away. This is a big help if someone is sitting up with a newborn at midnight or needs a quick boost to get through the day.

Think Outside the Dinner Box

  • You don’t care just at dinnertime! Breakfast and lunch meals are appreciated just as much.
  • A great way to start the day is a breakfast care package. Great combinations could be:
  • Lunch is another great care meal option to try:

No Cleanup Says You Care

  • The goal is to make your care meal easy, so try to bring as much of your meal as you can in disposable containers.
  • Casseroles travel well in aluminum pans and make for easy reheating of all those leftovers.
  • Plastic utensils and paper plates make for no-wash dining.
  • Package snacks in paper or plastic bags and tie with string or ribbon for a decorative touch.
  • Pack all of your goodies in a decorative basket or box. The recipient can use the basket again or toss the box after unpacking.
  • Finish the total package with a thoughtful keepsake, such as a card, flowers, a bottle of wine, a DVD or maybe just a square of bubble wrap to pop for stress relief!
