Sriracha Factory Shut Down Again

The creators of Sriracha are facing another dousing to their production, as the California Department of Health has applied stricter guidelines to the way the hot sauce is made.

The halt comes just weeks after a court order shut down the factory after complaining neighbors allegedly suffered heartburn, inflamed asthma, and even nosebleeds they said were caused by the spicy odors seeping from the factory. The uproar eventually pushed the city of Irwindale to sue Huy Fong Foods for the alleged health hazard.
