Huy Fong Foods, makers of everybody's favorite Sriracha sauce, is asking followers for support today at Irwindale City Hall. A hearing is set for 6:30 p.m. to discuss whether the plant is emitting "any noxious, irritating or offensive odors" and if those odors constitute a public nuisance.
Last fall Huy Fong Foods was sent to court when neighbors complained that production caused unpleasant odors and burning eyes. Then, in November, a judge ordered the facility to cease any operations that caused the aforementioned side effects. In response to the odor complaints, Huy Fong Foods fired back opening up its factory for tours in an attempt to educate people on how the sauce is made.
