This final note might be a bit worrisome for Sriracha lovers. 

Sriracha, the hot chili sauce, is produced at a plant in Southern California. The factory has now been partially shut down under a judge’s order.

Residents who live near the plant complained of heartburn, asthma and nosebleeds that they said were caused by the spicy smells coming from the Sriracha plant.

The city and the factory owner — Huy Fung foods — are trying to come up with a solution that works for people who live there and for those who love to buy and eat the spicy red stuff.

Check out our exclusive interview with the founder of Sriracha where reveals why he prices his sauce the way he does.
