(Newsys) The makers of the much-loved hot sauce Sriracha are facing a lawsuit alleging a factory in Irwindale, California is making life unbearable for nearby residents.

“Residents began complaining last month about a strong odor as well as burning eyes, irritated throats and folks got headaches too,” according toKPIX.

“Feeling your nose tingling, you want to sneeze. It’s like cooking chilis in your house and you have that little cough, that itch in your throat,” one resident said.
