The Sriracha siren

(article, Culinate staff)

If you like hot sauce, you are probably a serious fan of the Sriracha sauce made by Huy Fong Foods in California. Those fans are legion — and they're agitated by the news that the sauce plant in Irwindale might shut down.

The cause? A lawsuit brought by the city on behalf of citizens, contending that the factory's odor "is affecting their eyes, irritating throats, and causing headaches." Which, chile lovers might submit, is exactly why they love eating the stuff in the first place.
