IRWINDALE, Calif. >> A hot sauce company accused of stinking up the atmosphere around its Southern California plant is being peppered with offers to relocate.

The city of Irwindale is suing the maker of Sriracha hot sauce and last week the Los Angeles suburb tentatively voted to declare the bottling plant a public nuisance.

Sriracha's owner has said the company is working hard to reduce the spicy fumes.

Meantime, though, Huy Fong Foods has received offers to relocate its $40 million plant to Los Angeles, other California cities, Philadelphia and 11 states, including Texas and Ohio.

On Wednesday, CEO David Tran invited interested officials and business leaders to tour the plant.

Irwindale City Attorney Fred Galante says relocating seems extreme and the city only wants to see the smell issue addressed.
