Sriracha’s California factory partially shut down due to headache-inducing smell

A judge has ordered that Sriracha cease operations that are causing powerful odors at its factory in Irwindale, CA after nearby residents complained of headaches, breathing problems, and burning sensations. Judge Robert H. OBrien acknowledges that there was a lack of credible evidence that the spicy Sriracha stench is causing physical symptoms, but calls the fiery fumes a public nuisance. The aroma is extremely annoying, irritating and offensive to the senses, he writes. Fans of the red rooster sauce will be relieved that Huy Fong Foods, the maker of Sriracha, was not ordered to cease operations altogether — although the penalty could still cause the price to go up for the first time ever.
