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.

Freezer Meal Hacks for Busy Parents

Freezer Meal Hacks for Busy Parents

Some nights, preparing a home-cooked meal from scratch just isn't in the cards—and that's totally okay. Freezer meals are the answer. Try these super-delicious, super-convenient freezer meal tips to keep things easy, safe AND tasty:

Build your freezer meal repertoire. Need freezer meal ideas? We've got one or two…or fifteen. See the full list here.

Chill before freezing. Putting hot foods in the freezer can increase your freezer's temperature, making it more likely for other foods to defrost. Not good. In a hurry? Refrigerate an uncovered dish and stir soups or stews frequently to speed up the chilling process.

Freeze with ease. Portion meals into individual containers or bags before freezing. This makes it super easy to grab what you need and avoid wasting food. Leave some extra space at the top of plastic containers and remove all the air from plastic bags before freezing.

Take stock of what's in your freezer. Be sure to rotate meals so you use everything up. Most freezer meals will last anywhere from two to six months if they remain frozen during this time.
