Houston Casualty Co. Sues River Ranch Fresh Foods for Misrepresentations on Policy Application
Jan 13 14
Houston Casualty Co. filed a lawsuit against River Ranch Fresh Foods alleging it does not owe coverage in connection with claims involving contaminated romaine lettuce. River Ranch, which operates two fresh produce processing and cooling facilities in California, sought a malicious product tampering/accidental product contamination insurance policy from Houston Casualty in April 2012. The insurer alleges that, at the time, River Ranch knew there was a potential claim involving the contaminated lettuce and failed to disclose it on the policy application. As a result, the lawsuit alleges Houston Casualty was unable to adequately assess the risk involved in issuing a policy. The lawsuit seeks a declaration that Houston Casualty does not owe coverage of more than $1 million in losses arising from a recall of bagged lettuce processed by River Ranch. It also seeks damages based on material misrepresentation.
