Gov Brown Reps To Tour Sriracha Plant in Irwindale

Posted Tuesday, May 27th 2014 @ 2pm  by KFBK News - Scot Murdoch

The Sriracha scandal in Southern California has now reached Sacramento.

Representatives from Governor Jerry Brown's office will tour the Huy Fong Foods hot sauce facility today in the hopes of helping broker a deal to keep the factory in the state.

Irwindale leaders have been at odds with the factory owner for months over claims that chili odors from the facility were causing itchy eyes and scratchy throats among area residents.

Huy Fong Foods has discussed potentially leaving town over the issue, with Texas being eyed as a potential landing spot.
