The Paqui #OneChipChallenge is back and has sent several children to the hospital.
Paqui is a flavored tortilla chip company that has been releasing a new spicy chip for the last six years.
The 2022 One Chip Challenge features the Carolina Reaper chip, one of the spiciest peppers in the world.
As the website also claims, the chip left many users who took the challenge with a blue mouth and tongue.
The 2022 edition of the Paqui chip has a Scoville unit of 1.7 million.
The Carolina Reaper is officially the Worlds Hottest Pepper as ranked by Guinness Book of World Records and scales at 2.2 million SHU!
The chip can cause intense side effects and an unbearable burning sensation in the stomach as well as mouth.
Medical experts have alarmed users against the dangerous trend that can cause serious harm after several US states like California, Texas and Alabama saw hospitalizations due to the chip.
The chip is still being sold online despite multiple warnings and backlash from the parents and medical experts.
