So the other night I( a ncgi) and my friend(celiac) decide to eat fried chicken. We cooked it the usual manner. The flour was rice flour and sorgum flour and we thought we were safe. Mere moments after eating we both start feeling horrible. We narrowed it down and discovered that the corn nor the rice were the suspects. We took a look at purdue's frozen chicken and made a shocking discovery. The chicken had been frozen in a broth that contained barley. We wee dumbfounded. So please be careful. The bag did not continue any allergy info and sadly there customer service was non-existing.

I better check my chicken. Normally we buy all of our meat from our local butcher but recently I bought a big bag of Purdue frozen chicken breasts from Costco to give them a try. Thank you for the heads up!

There are so many reasons not buy Purdue chickens. Having gluten is the least of them.

Was that listed on the bag?  If not, how do you know?

Did it actually list barley on the ingredient label? I've never seen that on a Perdue (or any) fresh chicken.

I couldn't find anything on their website either.

 

Generally from what i've seen, chickens are often injected with a salt solution (water and salt).

Perdue fresh chicken is all gluten free, it says so right on their website. Their chicken isn't the cheapest chicken at Costco so I've never even looked at a bag but putting barley in frozen chicken would be a complete waste of money when plain salt water is so much cheaper. If you could provide more info that would be super helpful, like if this information was printed on the bag of chicken or how you got it.

I have never seen chicken frozen IN a broth that you would want to dry off and fry. Nor have I seen barley injected into chicken. Some chicken is injected with salt water. You can tell by looking at the sodium content. Plain chicken has about 40 units of sodium naturally. Please provide some evidence of this fact.

IrishHeart,

 

Where do I start? Deceptive marketing practices, grossly inhumane conditions, environmental pollution, restrictive contracts on local growers, feed that includes arsenic, antibiotics, and god knows what else, and so forth. 

 

These issues are not limited to Perdue (we've been spelling it wrong). These are the same issues that most industrialized meat producers are guilty of. Perdue has just always had a reputation of being the one of the worst offenders.

 

This is getting slightly off-topic, but I just took a course on US Food Systems and saw this great video on the future of farming with a focus on meat production. If you're interested in this sort of thing here it is (about 30 minutes long):

For those of us with celiac and NCGI our number one concern when buying food has to be gluten and possibly our other intolerances or allergies if we have them. Many of us are on fixed incomes or even food stamps and are far too poor to have things like principles. (This is a common joke in my house, it is meant to be funny.) Don't get me wrong, I grew up on a farm and I'm all about the humane treatment of our food sources. Don't even get me started on how much mistreating our animal food angers me. But frankly, I'm too poor to be picky. If it is gluten free, I'll buy the cheapest one at the store. I'm too poor to have morals about it until I am well enough to have a job. I don't think this is the appropriate place to get into some moral debate about how to be nice to chickens. This is about gluten in chickens.

That is all fine but it still doesn't explain why the OP is accusing the company of poisoning him and his friend with barley.

Actually, this is more than slightly off topic and inappropriate to the discussion, but, I think Adalaide addressed it sufficiently.
