To Our Valued Customers:

This morning the Canadian Government released a Food Recall Warning for Microbiological Salmonella that has been traced to red onions distributed throughout Canada. We do not sell to the parties that have been implicated in this recall and we wanted to confirm that the onions in this incident are not from our company.

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)

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.

If you have any questions please contact either me or Sara Brinkley, Director of Food Safety, via the contact information noted below.

As always, the team at Peri & Sons Farms is completely committed to providing our customers a safe, pure, and clean product. We remain deeply grateful for your continued business and wish you and your entire team safety and good health.

Sincerely,
Pamela Peri

One Thing in Common
Did you know onions are the only basic ingredient found in every single solitary cuisine around the world? Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Believed to be native to Asia, these underground bulbs are prized all over the world; they are definitely prized in Yerington, Nevada at Peri & Sons Farms where we have been growing premium white, red, yellow, sweet and organic onions since 1979.

If you love cooking, and especially cooking with onions, then we think you will particularly enjoy this part of our website. We invite you to join our Onion Obsession Club to periodically receive information and recipes featuring onions.

Grilled Corn and Black Bean Salad
Ingredients
For the dressing:
2 cups packed Italian basil leaves
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small shallot, chopped
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 cup plus three tablespoons light olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

For the salad:
4 ears corn
1 16-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, washed, dried and halved
1/2 red or sweet onion, cut into slivers
Basil leaves, for garnish
Directions
Prep and grill the corn: Carefully peel back the husks of each ear of corn but do not remove. Pull away the silk off of the corn and discard. Carefully put the husks back in place over the corn. Soak the corn in cold water for 10-15 minutes. Remove corn from water and shake to remove the excess liquid.

While the corn is soaking, preheat your grill to medium. Grill the corn for 15 minutes, turning a quarter turn every 3-4 minutes. The husks will char but pay attention during the grilling process that they do not catch fire. Remove the corn from the heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Once the corn is cool enough to handle, remove husks from corn and slice kernels off.

Add corn, beans, tomatoes and onion to a mixing bowl. Drizzle dressing over the salad and toss gently to combine. Place salad in a serving bowl and garnish with basil leaves. You can serve this salad immediately or chill for an hour first.

Use this weekend's farmer's market haul to whip up this sweet, spicy, savory and good-for-you salad. This mayo-free recipe can sit out for awhile without risk of going bad, making it a great choice for your next pot luck or end of Summer barbecue. The left over basil vinaigrette also works well stirred into a pasta salad or as a bruschetta topping.
