California city votes to end dispute with Sriracha hot sauce maker

IRWINDALE, Calif. - The fiery fight between the makers of a popular hot sauce and a small Southern California city is apparently over.

The Irwindale City Council voted Wednesday night to drop a public nuisance declaration and lawsuit against Huy Fong Foods, makers of Sriracha (suhr-AH'-chuh) hot sauce.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports that the closed-session council vote was unanimous.

The city has been at odds with the company for months after residents complained spicy odours burned their throats and eyes.

But city officials met Tuesday with company CEO David Tran and representatives of Gov. Jerry Brown's Business and Economic Development Office. Afterward Mayor Mark Breceda said he would ask the council to end the fight.

Representatives from the city and the company did not immediately reply to requests for comment.
