Smelly sauce plant must keep neighbors' noses in mind Published: November 27, 2013

Huy Fong Foods, maker of the popular Sriracha spicy sauce, was ordered to stop operations that cause strong smells that have irritated people in its neighborhood, according to USA TODAY.

The paper reports Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert O'Brien ruled Tuesday that the plant must cease any operations that cause the noxious fumes and make quick changes to make sure that smells from production of the sauce are limited in the future.

Irwindale city residents, east of Los Angeles, sued Huy Fong in October alleging the company refused to do enough to stop the fumes, which they said were strong enough to irritate eyes and throats, USA TODAY reports.
