Sriracha plant officially declared too hot

IRWINDALE, California (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Sriracha plant in southern California is now officially declared too hot.

The Irwindale, California City Council has voted to declare the hot sauce factory a public nuisance.

The company now has 90 days to stop the spicy odors coming from the building.

Many residents have complained of burning eyes and upper respiratory issues since last fall.

With the declaration, the city now has the ability to come into the factory and make changes if the odor continues after the deadline.

The company says it's working on its filtration system.
