Is the Sriracha Shortage Real?

Hosted by

Hot sauce fans worldwide are focused on a factory in the San Gabriel Valley, as the battle heats up between the city of Irwindale and Huy Fong Foods. The factory makes the beloved Sriracha Chile Sauce, but a superior court judge last week ordered a partial shutdown.  Now experts have to determine what parts of the operation cause odors that have local residents up in arms.  The Internet is ablaze with fears of a shortage being called SrirachApocalypse. To sort out fact from fiction we called a writer who knows the territory. Randy Clemens is a food journalist and author of The Sriracha Cookbooks.
