ComEd Customers Spoiled Food Claims Rejected After August Power Outage

ComEd customers are not happy with the power company after their spoiled food claims stemming from an August power outage have been rejected.  More than 800-thousand customers lost power during the storm in August with many of them not able to properly keep their food refrigerated.  At the time, ComEd issued a statement encouraging customers to submit their claims but they have since reversed course.  In a statement sent to WLS-TV, officials now say ComEd is “not liable for damages caused by severe weather” or other natural disasters.
