School says the Doritos (snacks), which are 10 times hotter than a jalapeno, can cause “severe distress”
A school in Britain has banned the Doritos, billed as the hottest crisp of Britain, after they cause a student to stop breathing!
Teachers at the George Pindar School said that these spicy snacks – that are the 10 times more hotter than a jalapeno, are a health and safety risk.
The secondary school in Scarborough sent a letter to parents warning them the snack can cause “severe distress” and advised kids to steer clear.
The fiery flavor has already been outlawed in the United States and Doritos boast on its website the snack will “leave you close to tears”.
One parent said: “You don’t want to be putting something in your children’s packed lunches that’s going to leave them unwell. “It’s good the school are doing something about it.”
A school spokesperson said:
“In relation to the cautionary note in our newsletter with regard to the Doritos Roulettes it was placed in there after an incident with a student where they had experienced some difficulty breathing after eating one.The student had a pre-existing respiratory condition which clearly made them sensitive to the hot element of the Doritos chip.”
The crisps were launched in April and one in every handful is coated with a fiery flavouring which measures 78,000 units on the Scoville Heat Scale – a Scotch Bonnet pepper rates between 100,000 to 350,000.
When they were launched a Doritos spokesman said:
“There’s a warning on the pack for a reason – the invisible hot chips are exactly that.They’re hotter than most of the spiciest dishes out there so youre going to want to have a glass of milk at the ready in case you get one!”
A Doritos spokesman said:
“We warn people to expect a seriously spicy experience with Doritos Roulette and we make this clear on the pack and in our adverts.The front of the pack states ‘Warning: Some of these chips are ultra spicy’, and we also warn that Doritos Roulette are not recommended for young children.”
