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 Easy Cooking Lessons for Kids

Getting your kids involved in the kitchen sets them up for success, and as parents, that’s all we want. Children who feel comfortable making meals in the kitchen from an early age will be much more likely to continue to cook and eat healthier food when they grow up. Use these easy cooking lessons to teach your kids some good habits and inspire their culinary creativity.

  1. Measuring: Hand out the cups and spoons and have the kids start measuring out ingredients. Since they're still learning, you should double check before you add their portions to your recipe. Try this tasty Chicken Chow Mein recipe to put their skills to the test.
  2. Dicing and mincing: Older kids and teens can move on to dicing and mincing. Be sure to supervise very carefully!
  3. Plating: Encourage your children to add an artistic touch to their meals. These plating techniques are fun and easy ways to get visual.
  4. Cleanup: This is the step that most people dread when it comes to the cooking process, but it’s where discipline is formed. And let's face it—it's always nice to get some extra help with doing the dishes.
