Sriracha hot sauce factory officially declared a nuisance
IRWINDALE, CA (AP) – A city in Southern California has officially declared a hot sauce factory a nuisance.
Irwindale’s City Council voted Wednesday night to give the Sriracha hot sauce factory 90 days to stop the spicy odors from emanating from the building. Declaring a public nuisance will allow city officials to enter the factory and make changes if the odors persist after the deadline.
An attorney for the company says it’s been working on its filtration system since Irwindale residents began complaining about the odors last fall.
