Sriracha Sauce May Disappear! LA County Shuts Down Manufacturing Plant!

California media are reporting Sriracha, the beloved chili sauce, may be “crippled” by an LA County court decision to shut down its largest manufacturing plant.

The chilis are processed fresh, which means a year’s supply of the sauce is made within three months of harvest season. That intense period of production apparently pollutes the air with the smell of chilis!

Neighbors are complaining of runny noses, heartburn — even bloody noses.

Until the factory can come up with a solution, they won’t be allowed to process fresh chilis.

That means the jalepeño peppers may be left to rot in the fields and a large percentage of the company’s annual production will never occur.

The best that could happen is a skyrocketing of prices for the popular condiment.
