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.

Spring into Spring with a Brunch Playdate

April 2017

Spring into Spring with a Brunch Playdate

In a way, brunch is kind of like an adult playdate. Bring the entire family together for this hybrid meal with activities and yummy delights for all ages!


  • If you have kids, you probably already have kid-friendly foods in your pantry; you don’t have to go for gourmet, just fun!
  • Try to have balanced snacks, such as a protein; fruit or veggies; some kind of carb; and some kind of dairy, such as milk or cheese
  • Kids love finger foods, such as Chicken Waffle BLTs… bacon-wrapped chicken nuggets with lettuce and tomato on a mini waffle
  • Find out in advance whether there are any food allergies
  • If you’re having the parents over as well, think about fresh, seasonal, easy fare 


Try to plan some activities to keep those kiddies occupied, and if the weather is nice, take it outside!

  • Games
    • Have an Easter egg hunt
  • For smaller kids, have a tea party
  • How about a friendly game of tag?
  • Garden planting
    • Give the kids plastic cups, some soil and seeds, and let them plant their own spring garden—it’s a great take-home favor, and they get to watch their garden grow
  • Dance
  • Turn on the music and let them wiggle away... try the bunny hop!
  • Crafting
    • A little glue, string and some fun pasta shapes make for a good time and a fun take-home playdate favor
    • Edible decorating: have fun with prefilled icing tubes and some cupcakes or cookies to decorate like spring flowers

When it’s Time to Go Home

Little kids are good for about an hour, and bigger ones can last two, but more than that can become a burden. Here’s how to wind down your playdate.

  • Let the kids know 15 minutes before the playdate is over that it soon will be time to go home, then start the countdown to 10 minutes and then 5 minutes
  • Have the children help in the cleanup
    • Have the kids see how many toys they can put away
    • See how fast the kids can clean up
