To Our Valued Customers:


There was a recall on fresh whole red, white, and yellow onions imported from Chihuahua, Mexico on October 20th, 2021. Our company did not purchase from any of the distributors named in this incident nor did we purchase product imported from Chihuahua, Mexico. Our onions are grown fresh right here in NV and shipped direct to stores. We do not have any association whatsoever with the parties that have been implicated in this recall. The onions in this incident are not from our company. Peri & Sons Farms onions are safe for consumption.


Peri & Sons Farms has the strictest food safety policies in place to ensure the safety of our customers and end consumers. Our internal food safety standards and practices require that all onions, red, white, sweets and yellows, sold from our farms and packing shed facilities carry a certificate of analysis with negative results for both Salmonella and E. coli. We have provided documentation of our testing analysis for your reference as attachments. See Certificates of Analysis. (COA). Additionally, verification of our food safety certifications can be found here: www.PeriandSons.com/Onions.


We hope this information and documentation of our testing will put your mind at ease with respect to the quality and purity of our onions. As always, COAs are available for all buyers upon request.

Grilled Halloumi and Orange Salad
Ingredients
For the salad:
1 8-ounce package Halloumi cheese, cut into 1/2" slices
10 ounces baby arugula or spinach, washed and dried
2 medium or 4 small oranges, peeled, pith removed and sectioned (we used Clementines, but use whatever variety looks fresh and sweet that you can find)
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, washed, dried and halved
1/4 cup pomegranate arils
1/2 red or sweet onion, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons olive oil

For the vinaigrette:
1/4 cup rice or white wine vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons orange marmalade
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 red or sweet onion, minced
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Directions
Make the vinaigrette: In a lidded glass jar, combine all vinaigrette ingredients and shake vigorously, until oil begins to emulsify and dressing thickens. Set aside.

Assemble the salad: Layer greens, oranges, tomatoes, pomegranate and onion in a serving bowl. Set aside while you gill the Halloumi.

Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. Brush Halloumi slices on both sides with olive oil. Grill each side for about two minutes, until cheese begins to brown on edges and soften in the middle. Remove from heat.

Place Halloumi on top of salad and drizzle with vinaigrette. Serve immediately.
