Sriracha, the popular hot sauce with a strong taste and an even stronger following, has been in lots of trouble in California. So now Texas is trying to woo Huy Fong Foods, the company that makes the sauce.

The plant that makes the sauce produces a strong odor. Neighbors aren’t happy. Huy Fong had to shut down part of its operation after the city of Irwindale, Calif., filed suit.
