Sriracha Plant Faces New Lawsuit

Sriracha Plant Faces New Lawsuit
Posted January 31st, 2014 @ 3:43pm by KFBK News

An Irwindale city attorney says he's planning to add another claim against a Sriracha hot sauce plant that has already been ordered to partially shut down.

The attorney says he will add a breach-of-contract allegation that claims Huy Fong Foods did not comply with operating conditions including one that prohibits the plant from emitting foul odors.

This claim would be added to the nuisance suit that alleges odors from the factory caused residents to become ill with asthma, heartburn and nose bleeds.

A judge has set November 3rd as the start of a jury trial in this case.
