I don’t Twitter. And I don’t always keep up with the posts percolating in my head — supposedly on their eventual way to publication. So for the past couple of weeks, I’ve been meaning to post some updates. In addition, as I like to do this time of the year, I’m also providing more links to FREE CLE for all my year-end procrastinators. The usual disclaimers apply.
I should have noticed when I picked up my last order of take-out pho, that they’d shorted me the tiny plastic cup of Sriracha. Good thing I have a bottle of the hot sauce at home.
But I now realize why. Last month, Sriracha was allegedly a “public nuisance” because of complaints over the chili pepper and garlic fumes emanating from Huy Fong Foods’ production facility in Irwindale, CA. On Tuesday, November 26th, Judge Robert H. O’Brien ruled in favor of the city and ordered a partial shutdown of operations. It’s all pending the company’s efforts to mitigate the smell of chili.
Happily, the plant’s not being closed. And so the company says there’s no need to panic about a supply shortage. All the same, I hope my local pho eatery doesn’t start issuing Sriracha ration cards. See “Judge orders cool-down at Sriracha factory.”
