Is The Sriracha Plant A Public Nuisance? We'll Have To Wait Another Month To Find Out
Those anxiously awaiting the fate of the Irwindale Sriracha plant will have to hold on just a bit longer. It turns out the decision to label the plant a public nuisance (or not) has been delayed until April 1.
Irwindale city council members ultimately decided last night to give the company more time to work with the South Coast Air Quality Management District on its odor issue.
Last night cock sauce loyalists showed up and protested at the city council meeting held in the company’s hometown of Irwindale. Experts showed up to offer their findings on the issues, too. Says the Los Angeles Times:
Multiple experts presented findings, including an environmental chemist from SWAPE, a consulting firm in Santa Monica, who offered information on how the smell could affect more or fewer people at certain times because of weather conditions. Residents who made the initial complaints were also present.
