Could Sriracha see an untimely demise?

I'm a big fan of sriracha, so this would make me sad...

http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/smar...ut-down-panic/

Quote:


In Irwindale, California, nose-y neighbors, sick of the supposedly strong chili smell emanating from the factory where Sriracha hot sauce is made, want the Huy Fong Foods factory shut down unless the odor can be abated. The city has filed a public nuisance lawsuit, says the Associated Press, “seeking temporary closure of the factory until Huy Fong submits a plan to minimize the smell.” CBS:
“The odors are so strong and offensive as to have caused residents to move outdoor activities indoors and even to vacate their residences temporarily to seek relief from the odors,” according to the suit.
Living next to a food processing plant is always a scented existence, and Huy Fong Foods has denied there’s a problem. But if the injunction goes through, it could spell bad news for hot sauce lovers everywhere.

The factory in Irwindale where Sriracha is now made opened just last year. At 650,000 square feet, says Quartz, the company can pump out up to 7,500 bottles of hot sauce each hour. Huy Fong Foods was started 33 years ago by Vietnamese refugee David Tran, and the company, says Quartz, has never raised its wholesale prices. If the Sriracha factory is shuttered, supply and demand may do what Tran never did. Canada might have a strategic maple syrup reserve, but if Sriracha goes out of production, there’s no emergency warehouse waiting to be tapped.

If the price of Sriracha skyrockets, where will the heat-seeking foodie turn? For the New Yorker, Lauren Collins details how chili sauces have grown into a massive industry.
Chilis have become an attractive business. According to a report by IBISWorld, a market-research firm, hot-sauce production is one of America’s ten fastest-growing industries, along with solar-panel manufacturing and online eyeglass sales.
Unfortunately, it seems, based on Collins’ account, the so-called “chiliheads” driving the hot sauce boom have been in a bid to best each other on one metric alone, Scoville units, a measure of hotness. With manufacturers racing to abandon taste for sheer burn, we can only hope the city of Irwindale and Huy Fong Foods can work out their differences before our bottle is empty.

There are lots of other chili sauces out there. It's just surprising that California is so intent on running jobs out of the state

I bought a bottle last weekend just because of this thread. Never had it before. It was quite good, and different than most hot sauces I eat. Not too spicy, but the chili stays with you and the garlic is great. I put some on my egg sandwich, friggin' awesome.

Hope this stuff stays around, as I just discovered it!

Tried to eat my grilled chicken, broccoli, and couscous topped with Sriracha at my desk for lunch and got run out of the department by the pizza and jalapeno Cheetos eating savages around me. They said the fumes were making their eyes water and causing them to cough.

Updating my LinkedIn profile, this is crap.

***I never eat my lunch at my desk, but the Mitchell report is due by 4pm.

Don't forget to put the new cover sheets on the report. Did you get that memo?

Ah! Yeah, it's just we're putting new coversheets on all the reports before they go out now, so if you could go ahead and try to remember to do that from now on, that would be great!

The Sriracha Factory Is a Public Nuisance, Says California City



Council representatives in Irwindale have demanded a hot sauce factory do a better job within 90 days to contain its stinging fumes that residents say causes asthma, heartburn, headaches, teary eyes and nosebleeds—or they'll go in and make the changes themselves.

A city in California has declared a Sriracha plant located close to town a public nuisance for emanating spicy fumes that have prompted a ton of complaints, the Associated Press reports.

The declaration was made by the Irwindale City Council on Wednesday night. Council representatives will now enter the hot sauce factory and make changes if the factory doesn’t find a way to contain the pollution within 90 days.

Last fall, residents complained that stinging fumes emanating from the factory caused asthma problems, heartburn, headaches, streaming eyes and nosebleeds. The complaints resulted in the factory being partly shut-down, but the problems persisted.

The Sriracha maker, Huy Fong Foods, is working with the air-quality experts South Coast Air Management District on improving its filtration system and is making progress, air-quality experts said.

The hot sauce Sriracha is Thai in origin but has become a popular condiment in many kinds of restaurants in the U.S.

Nothing fancy, just a nice raw pepper taste, it's actually a rigid, dull sauce - but really works well when used with the right foods. I DID know a squirter once though, HOT brunette, about five yrs. older than me.


It's the only hot sauce I buy.

Lately, I've been brushing Sriracha over raw bacon before putting it in the oven to bake.

More than welcome to move to Iowa. Our governor sucks, but I'm sure we can still cut them a deal.
