SALISBURY, Md. – Perdue's Simply Smart breaded chicken products are now USDA Process Verified for being sourced from chickens that have never been fed antibiotics.
The company said the No-Antibiotics-Ever products will begin appearing in the frozen food section of stores in October and November. The "No Antibiotics Ever claim is on all Perdue Simply Smart packages along with the new "Raised Cage-free in the US" Process Verified claim.
“Consumers are increasingly interested in how their food is raised and where it comes from, and our USDA Process Verified Programs help us answer those questions,” said Jim Perdue, chairman. “All chickens used in Perdue Simply Smart products are from chickens raised cage-free on farms in the US, never given any antibiotics and fed an all-vegetarian diet with no animal by-products.”
