In the meanwhile, gaze upon this to ease the pain...
Yesterday, some loser Los Angeles County Superior Court judge sided with loser Irwindale residents who complain that odors from Sriracha's newish plant in the loser city are causing them respiratory problems. OH NO!


Read the account of the Los Angeles Times--which broke the story-here.

One big issue no one is discussing. Irwindale itself is one giant respiratory problem. Between the gravel pits, the heavy industries already there, and the general stench of the town, having Sriracha there masks all of those vile odors. They shouldn't be banned; they should be elected to City Hall.

In the meanwhile, yes: start stocking up on Sriracha NOW, as the price will inevitably rise...

Fix what? The plant is not broken and complies with the AQMD/ARB best available control technologies. The only issue are nuisance complaints from the neighbors who (NOW) are tired of the pepper smell. As the owner said, "the city of Irwindale was more than happy when I moved the plant to this city."

At the peril of offending the locals, I have to say I actually prefer Kikkoman Sriracha better... Has more of a roasted chipotle like flavor and not just heat.

And once again California proves why we are the least business friendly state in the country. Irwindale is beyond idiotic.
