Is Southern California's Most Famous Hot Sauce Moving Out?

Hosted by

After months of complaints about what might be called ‘excessively pungent' odors, the Irwindale City Council was unanimous last week in declaring the Hoy Fong factory that makes Sriracha sauce a public nuisance. That gives the city the power to walk in and install smell-mitigation technology if Hoy Fong doesn't in 90 days. David Tran, Sriracha's creator, says that means he just might move his operation out of Irwindale. Frank Shyong is reporting the story for the LA Times.
