I guess my mom found the pasta I made for her a bit bland. I put a drop of sriracha on her plate, and she was instantly hooked. She literally held the bottle in one hand as we ate dinner. I should feel offended, but I completely understand the need for more sriracha.

Oh and on a more serious note, an inter-county air quality monitoring agency has confirmed that burning hot pepper smell from the Huy Fong sriracha factory indeed has been detected in neighborhoods around the factory. City of Irwindale (where the factory is located) originally sought to halt all sriracha production until something could be done, but LA County Superior Court denied the motion. The funny thing is, it was the city who offered the company economical incentives to move its factory to Irwindale in the first place... Oops.
