Join Times staff writer Frank Shyong for an L.A. Now Live discussion at 12:30 p.m. Thursday on the hot sauce that makes many people's taste buds dance, and others' blood boil: Sriracha.
Residents who live near the Sriracha factory in Irwindale have complained of burning eyes, headaches and scratchy throats caused by a powerful, painful odor they say is a result of the hot sauce production.
In October, the city of Irwindale filed a lawsuit against the company, claiming the odor was a public nuisance.
Since then the saga has continued, with frustrations on both sides.
On Wednesday night, the Irwindale City Council voted to postpone a decision on whether to declare the Sriracha factory a public nuisance.
Shyong, who have been covering the issue extensively, will join us for the chat to answer questions and take reader comments on the hot sauce battle.
