Personally, I never touch the stuff, but this is apparently a big flipping deal to many:
The Southern California-based maker of Sriracha says it can’t ship any more of its popular hot sauces to food distributors until next month because the state Department of Public Health is now enforcing stricter guidelines.
The Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday (http://lat.ms/19iqSB6 ) that Huy Fong Foods says the regulations require the sauces be held for 35 days before they are shipped.
I’ll merely note that there are, in fact, fifty states in the Union; and I can think of at least one that would be happy to help Huy Fong Foods relocate to a more business and hot sauce-friendly environment. That way, the company goes back to making hot sauce, the new state rakes in the sales tax, and California can feel smug about driving another source of jobs out of the state for the sake of bureaucracy.
See? Everybody wins. Well, except California voters… but then, they keep voting these people in.
