Could Sriracha see an untimely demise?

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

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.

I went through a sriracha phase. Since moving to texas there is a much wider variety of southwest/mexican hot sauce. I picked up a quart of some for $.77 good stuff, water, chiles, vinegar, salt. that is it

I like both, but Sriracha is probably better, IMO. Different. Cholula, Frank's, various Tabasco's are all excellent.

They would be welcomed in Iowa. As previously noted, we have all sorts of smells and live with them just fine.

Judge Orders California Sriracha Factory to Halt Odor-Making Operations



It might be a good idea to stockpile Sriracha, because a judge in California has ordered the Huy Fong Foods Sriracha hot sauce plant in Irwindale, CA to cease any operations that cause irritating odors following a lawsuit filed by the city. The LA Times reports that the judge ruled in favor of the city, writing that the odor appears to be "extremely annoying, irritating and offensive to the senses warranting consideration as a public nuisance." While he did write that the smells tormenting the citizens of Irwindale could be "reasonably inferred" to coming from the factory, the judge also added that there is a "lack of credible evidence" linking the various cited ailments like burning eyes and headaches to the odors.

Though the injunction orders the factory to "cease any kind of operations that could be causing the odors" and that it "make immediate changes that would help mitigate them," it does not force a complete closure of the factory, nor does it specify what exact changes need to be made. While some chefs have already begun preparing for a life without Sriracha, it seems that next year's supply might actually be unaffected by the ruling since the chilis for the year's batch have already been ground. The ruling will go into effect as soon as it is signed, but the case might still go to trial.

Fortunately, there are other sriracha options. The Trader Joe's one isn't bad.

This stuff can play into a wing sauce nicely - it's almost like that's what it's designed for. As an addition to your normal hot sauce, this stuff makes bomb ass wings.

Did anyone actually ready the article that FMB posted?

The last sentence states that it's unlikely 2014 supply will be affected, as the chili peppers have already been ground (the grinding process is what produces the strong odors)

Yes, we are overreacting because it's funny.

I have friends though that were literally concerned about Sriracha not being available to them.

I knew you were being sarcastic, but I think some are literally pissed off. Just was making sure they knew that supply should be unaffected

They are stupid. It's like the number 2 condiment in the US. It will be available. If they had to make it on the moon, they would.
