A California man is suing the makers of Texas Pete hot sauce - because it's actually made in North Carolina.
- Plaintiff Philip White claims he purchased a bottle of the sauce a year ago because he believed it was a "Texas product".
- He claims the company, T.W. Garner Food Co., has "cheated its way to a market-leading position" by ripping off customers "who desire authentic Texas hot sauce".
- He also says the branding hurts small businesses that are actually from Texas.
- Texas Pete hot sauce mentions both on the bottle and the company web site that it's made in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The company has until Nov. 10th to officially respond to the lawsuit.
