How do I safely prepare your products?
Properly cooking chicken to reach the proper temperature will always ensure your poultry is safe from bacteria. Just remember, boneless chicken products should always be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 165 °F. For bone-in chicken, breasts should be cooked to 170 F and whole chickens, thighs and wings should reach at least 180 °F. All juices from cooked chicken should always run clear for any cut of chicken. For temperature accuracy, use a food thermometer. Any leftover chicken should be refrigerated within two hours after cooking.
Additionally, we recommend you keep fresh, uncooked poultry in the refrigerator for no more than two days to ensure maximum freshness. If you're planning to freeze your chicken, you should do it immediately upon returning from your shopping trip. If stored in freezer safe sealed bags or containers, raw chicken parts will remain wholesome in the freezer for up to nine months as whole chicken can stay in the freezer for up to one year. Please check out our other cooking tips.
Does Sanderson Farms import poultry from other countries?
Never. And you'll find the proof right on our label. Look for the American flag on our packaging as our guarantee that what you're buying is a product of the USA. In fact, all of our poultry is raised in the U.S. by our network of over 900 family owned farms. These farmers are carefully reviewed and selected prior to being contracted to raise our chickens and must adhere to the highest of standards in safety, health and sanitation to maintain these contracts.
How do you treat your chicken?
Sanderson Farms, Inc.’s primary responsibility in producing healthy chicken is to provide our consumers with a safe, wholesome, high quality product. Sanderson Farms complies with the National Chicken Council Animal Welfare Guidelines and all Sanderson Farms personnel involved with live animals have been properly trained in specific animal caretaking for their role, from transporting baby chicks from the hatchery and placing them on a farm to raising the broilers for harvest.

All antibiotics are prescribed and administered by the direction of a staff veterinarian and are in compliance with FDA regulations regarding dose level and withdrawal times prior to harvest.
