Arron Hendy and Ruari Barratt were dining at U.K. eatery Burger Off. Each took one bite of the XXX Hot Chili Burger. Minutes later, Barratt began suffering from severe stomach pain and soon lost feeling in his hands. His legs also began shaking and his eyes rolled to the back of his head, reports The Argus.
The sauce uses a concentrated piri piri chili sauce from India. Gambardella estimated that the sauce measures between seven to nine million units on the Scolville scale.
Tabasco sauce comes in around 2,500 5,000, while pepper spray ranks 500,000 to five million units.

I know this is not a very Christian thing to say, but why does it hardly ever bother me when the victims are members of the media.
XXX Hot Chili Burger
Maybe they should rename it to “100 Million Degree Thermonuclear Fireball with a 10 Mile Radius Blast Zone Chili Burger”.
Classic joke about the Texas BBQ judge:
I love my spicy foods, but if this thing could put me in the hospital I think I’ll pass.
I’m a spice-wimp and tabasco is too much for me at 2500 units. 9 million would put me in the grave
“Maybe they should rename it to 100 Million Degree Thermonuclear Fireball with a 10 Mile Radius Blast Zone Chili Burger.”
Next mornings ablutions must be like pooping a wood rasp.
I don’t care for Tabasco, personally. It isn’t the heat (I can tolerate more than it provides) but the lack of flavor.
We were dining al fresco at a local barbecue place. My friend notices he's dripped a drop of the super hot sauce on the table, and then a wasp lands, touches it, and promptly keels over dead. True story. I switched to the mild sauce, myself.
They're putting this piri piri stuff in anything
Or like someone said in “Things to Do in Denver When You’re Dead”, like white hot razor blades.
And this burger was 7 - 9 million?
Does it cook itself just sitting there?
Piri piri has been part of the hot sauce scene for years...maybe it’s being pimped as the hysteria over ‘ghost peppers’ winds down.
Must be the qualifying round for the Darwin Awards.
i am sorry’but if it’s hotter than pepper spray it ain’t food. it isn’t edible.
these people aren’t making an edible burger.
Yuh kan’t fix stoopit.
