Perdue receives USDA Process Verified Seal

Perdue Farms announced that it is introducing PERDUE® fresh, all natural chicken products in North Carolina with the USDA Process Verified Seal, reports PR Newswire.

Perdue is the first and only chicken company to receive this seal of verification for its practices and be allowed to make the claim on its product packaging. Products carrying the seal include Perdue® fresh, all natural whole chickens and bone-in parts as well as Perdue® Fit & Easy® boneless, skinless chicken products.

Jim Perdue, Chairman of Perdue: "The seal verifies our chickens are fed an all vegetarian diet, with no animal by-products. It also verifies they are raised cage-free and humanely raised. All of this adds up to a tastier Perdue chicken."
