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.

How to Make Nutritious Gluten-Free Meals Kids Actually Like

As you know, cooking for children is a tough job. Eliminate kid favorites like mac and cheese, spaghetti and pizza, and it just gets ten times tougher. When your kids have celiac disease or gluten sensitivities, there's a lot to watch out for. Use these tips to make nutritious, gluten-free meals your kids will love.

Know What to Watch Out For

It only takes a tiny bit of gluten to cause a reaction, so it's important that all sources of gluten are kept separate—separate cutting boards for gluten-free and regular bread, separate toasters and separate jars of peanut butter and condiments. Check this list of ingredients to avoid.

Go Natural

There are more gluten-free products on the market today, but many are low in fiber and minerals. Lots of gluten-free baked goods are made with refined grains, such as white rice or potato flour. Try to choose naturally gluten-free grains that are also high in fiber, like:

  • Brown rice
  • Quinoa
  • Corn
  • Buckwheat
  • Amaranth

Plan it Out

With proper planning and openness to trying new foods, you can make sure your kids love what they eat and avoid a bad reaction. Try these ideas:


Breakfast: Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Muffins and a glass of low-fat milk


Snack: Raw veggies, such as baby carrots, red pepper strips or sugar snap peas, with hummus


Dinner: Oven Baked Molasses Drumsticks with brown rice and steamed broccoli
