Irwindale city officials are scheduled to hold a hearing Wednesday night to decide whether to declare a Sriracha hot-sauce plant a public nuisance in the wake of complaints of a spicy odor coming from the factory. The public hearing is the latest move in the city's effort to force sauce maker Huy Fong Foods to address the smell. In November, the city sued the company in Los Angeles Superior Court, winning a temporary, partial shutdown.
