Sriracha Shortage?

It was horrible. Yelling, screaming shoppers cram the aisle, while store security is helpless to intervene in the mayhem. A mob of shoppers fighting over the last red bottle. Black Friday sales? No. Just the struggle for the last shipment of Sriracha. Looming shortages have created a nationwide panic. Where will we get the spice!

Maybe not… A judge has ordered a partial shutdown of production at the Huy Fong Foods plant in Irwindale, California. It is not expected to impact supply, but fans of the sauce are jittery, with the possibility of a sriracha shortage making news across the country.

Supplies are still plentiful at our local supermarket. Just as a precaution I bought the large bottle.
