In a past post, we shared how residents who live by the factory that makes the popular Sriracha sauce filed a lawsuit to try to stop or at least change the production of the condiment product. Why? As we shared about a month ago, residents in the nearby neighborhood complained that the production was making it uncomfortable to live in the area.
A judge heard the lawsuit and ruled in favor of the plaintiffs last week. He ordered the factory to stop any production process that might be putting the chemical in the air that residents allege causes them headaches, watery eyes and other discomfort. What was the company's response?
