The price of Sriracha may jump if a court orders the hot sauce factory to halt production over a dispute with the city of Irwindale, the company’s chief executive said.
After residents complained of burning eyes and throats and in some cases headaches, the city asked a judge Monday to halt operations at the plant. The plant, which processes raw materials for the sauce for about three months a year, is currently in the middle of a chile harvesting cycle.
