Sriracha hot sauce Update

Not Chinese related, besides there are a lot of Vietnamese restaurants in the suburban Chinatown of Rowland Heights. And Irwindale is near Rowland Heights.

Sriracha hot sauce factory no longer considered a public nuisance in Irwindale - SG Tribune

There is a lot that is not being said about what happened.

My understanding is:

  1. Srichacha moved from Rosemead to Irwindale. They got some type of deal and loan from the city on moving their factory.
  2. Srichacha paid off the loan early.
  3. Complaints then started coming in, per some comments I read it may have been from one family.
  4. CA State inspectors stopped the shipment of product, while it had to sit for a set amount of time based on a new interpretation of a state health law.
  5. Srichacha threatened to move and was courted by Texas, among others. Irwindale's reputation for business took a huge hit.
  6. CA state and Irwindale officials visited the plant, saw the improved filters, and the city council moved to remove the public nuisance.
