Bad news for hot-sauce devotees: the nation's sriracha supply is once again in jeopardy. The city of Irwindale, CA, requested to shut down the Huy Fong factory that produces America's best-known sriracha after complaints that a fiery odor was causing burning eyes and throats; yesterday, Judge Robert H. O'Brien sided with the city of Irwindale, forcing Huy Fong to stop operations.
The case could still go to trial, but things don't look good for the producer of the fiery condiment. Our advice? Hoard the sriracha. Otherwise, the following foods will never be the same.
The original sriracha combo. If you don't think this looks good, then there's something very wrong with you.

You must be mistaken. We asked for the pad thai with sriracha on it!
Egg and oatmeal without the Huy Fong? It's like Siegfried and the tiger without Roy.
See? Rooster sauce does fill peoples' hearts. Stop the madness, and keep the sriracha flowing!
