LOS ANGELES -

A judge has given a dose of cold water to the hot sauce Sriracha, saying the factory that manufactures the trendy condiment must partially shut down after neighbors complained of the spicy smells it was producing.

Judge Robert H. O'Brien on Tuesday ruled in favor of the city of Irwindale where Sriracha recently relocated, saying sauce maker Huy Fong Foods must stop any operations that could be causing the odors and make changes to mitigate them.

The Los Angeles Times reports that O'Brien's injunction does not specify what types of actions are required or force the factory to shut down altogether.

Huy Fong Foods had argued there is no reason to close the plant now because harvest season for red-hot Jalapeno peppers, the sauce's key ingredient, has passed.
