A new chili sauce goes on sale today that is so hot it could kill asthmatics.


Ultra-concentrated “16 Million Reserve” is the hottest science can make.

The sauce is 30 times hotter than the spiciest pepper and 8,000 times more fiery than Tabasco.

Diners must sign a disclaimer recommending “protective gloves and eye wear” ? but even sweating testers in safety gear were blinded by tears for 30 minutes.
