The Perdue name means the best quality, nutrition, and safety. Perdue chicken is 100% veggie fed with no animal-by-products. Taste the difference.
Choosing the meat
Using organic ground turkey, (or organic ground chicken) as an alternative to beef is healthier, cheaper, and just as delicious.
It is also free from hormones, genetic tampering, and antibiotics that the beef products currently offered on the market have.
After investigating all chicken/turkey breeders the only one that actually puts out an "organic" product is Perdue under the brand name: Harvest Brand.
The more common brands (Tyson, Sanderson Farms, Butterball, and others) all use GMO animals or animals that are fed GMO foods. These animals that are fed GMO foods also pass on genetically altered genes to the consumer, as do those animals directly genetically modified with other questionably healthy genes that alter the "natural" makeup of mother nature's own.
Man has never been, or will ever be, able to produce a better, or safer, product than that of mother nature.
