Texas Tries to Get Makers of Sriracha Sauce to Leave California

As the makers of Sriracha battle to stay open in California, legislators from Texas wooed the makers of the chili sauce to move to the Lone Star State.

Texas state Rep. Jason Villalba led the delegation meeting Monday with David Tran, head of Huy Fong Foods, which makes the famous red sauce with the trademark rooster logo, in Irwindale, Calif. The delegation toured the factory where Sriracha is produced.

“We’re not here to offer any specific incentives, but just to let it be known there are incentives,” said state Sen. Carlos Uresti after their visit, according to the Associated Press. He and Villalba cited the fact that Texas does not have a personal income tax as an example.

“I’m a huge fan of the product,” Villalba told USA TODAY Network. “When I saw there was a possibility I would not be able to put Sriracha on my eggs, believe me, we got into action.”

For months, Huy Fong has been battling the Irwindale City Council over complaints that fumes from its Sriracha plant are causing neighbors to get sick. . .
