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.

Kitchen Spring Cleaning Checklist

February 2017

Kitchen Spring Cleaning Checklist

While many hands make light work, this can lead to more mouths that make complaints. Your fam might groan when it’s time to tidy, but it CAN be fun. Get them excited about kitchen cleaning with these tips:

Make a checklist

If you have a large family, you can split up into teams. If your family is smaller, choose age-appropriate tasks for each person.

Give everyone a specific area to complete:

  • Clean out the refrigerator and freezer
  • Clean out and organize the drawers
  • Clean out and organize the cabinets
  • Pull out old and expired food and clean the pantry
  • Wipe down countertops and appliances
  • Clean the oven and cooktop
  • Scrub the sink and empty and load the dishwasher

Create an age-appropriate checklist for each person or team to complete:

Ages 3 to 6

  • Pick up clutter
  • Wipe down cabinet doors and knobs
  • Clean lower parts of windows and ledges
  • Wipe down baseboards
  • Find something to donate

Ages 7 to 12

  • Empty and load the dishwasher
  • Wipe down appliances
  • Clean the inside of the microwave
  • Sanitize light switch plates
  • Clean the inside of the refrigerator
  • Clean out and organize drawers
  • Find something to donate

Ages 13 to Adult

  • Clean the oven and cooktop
  • Wash the inside of the trash cans
  • Wash the windows
  • Clean the top of the refrigerator
  • Sweep and mop the floors
  • Dust the ceiling fans
  • Clear cobwebs from the ceilings
  • Find something to donate

Write all of the tasks on slips of paper or popsicle sticks. When someone needs a new chore, just pull one out of the jar.

Get Ready

Here are some ways set yourself up for cleaning success!

  • Put some good music on
  • Make sure you have enough cleaning supplies
  • If you have little ones, get some kid-sized tools, such as hand brooms and dustpans
  • Have a few cleaning caddies loaded with supplies to carry from task to task
  • Set up a large bag for trash
  • Set up a box for items to donate

Earn Rewards

Make spring cleaning fun–offer fun food or prizes for various completed tasks.

Hand out stickers to kids for completed tasks. Offer a larger reward if they collect enough stickers.

  • 10 stickers = a bag of fruit snacks
  • 20 stickers = ordering a pizza
  • 30 stickers = a new toy

Celebrate a job well done with a fun, no-mess snack or dinner:

And remember...the biggest reward is spending time as a family!
