Hot mess? Sriracha vows to fight on after public nuisance declaration
By Frank Shyong Huy Fong Foods officials reacted with disappointment Thursday to the city of Irwindale's decision to declare the smell of their Sriracha sauce production a public nuisance. Executive operations officer Donna Lam also thanked South Coast Air Quality Management District personnel and some elected officials in a statement to The Times on Tuesday. Air-quality officials have been testing the air at the plant, and in the coming weeks they will work with the company to design a filtering mechanism and an action plan to present to the city for comment.
