2-week truce for hot sauce maker, California city

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A cooling-off period has been called in the fight between the makers of a popular hot sauce and the Southern California city that says its air is too spicy to bear.

The Irwindale City Council delayed a decision for two weeks Wednesday night on declaring the Sriracha plant a public nuisance.

Owner David Tran called the decision disappointing and has opened his factory doors to lawmakers who were interested in having his plant relocate to their region. A delegation from Texas is expected to tour the facility next month.

Two weeks ago, council members tentatively but unanimously voted the 2-year-old plant was a nuisance. If the council had finalized its vote Wednesday, Huy Fong would have had 90 days to stop releasing the spicy emissions.
