A factory that produces the hot sauce Sriracha may be forced to close after nearby residents complained that odors coming from the building have been causing numerous irritations, the Los Angeles Times reports.
More than 30 residents of Irwindale, California filed complaints to the city, saying the strong odors were causing burning in the eyes, irritating throats and headaches, among others. In response, the city has filed suit in the Los Angeles City Court for the factory to cease production of the hot sauce until a plan of action to stop the odors is submitted.
