Sriracha Factory Hangs Banner for Irwindale Residents: No Tear Gas Made Here


Last Sunday, the Huy Fong Foods company — known for its infamous Sriracha chili sauce — erected a banner outside its Irwindale, Calif. factory reading "No Tear Gas Made Here."


The sassy move comes at the crux of an ongoing dispute between Huy Fong and Irwindale residents, who claim fumes coming from the factory have caused them burning eyes and irritated throats. Last Tuesday, a judge ordered the factory to stop any operations which could contribute to the smell and begin making larger, more long-term amends. Still, if this brazen, we daresay cocky, display is any indication, it would seem the hot sauce giant has a little fight left in it yet.
