Super Spicy Hot Pot Soup Burned Hole in Man's Stomach
A hospital in Wuhan, China has reported an increase in the number of "hot pot" cases
<snip>
According to Sankei Biz, a factor in this freak accident might be that many hot pot restaurants are using cheap synthetic seasonings, instead of real Sichuan peppers for heat. So much so that the Wuhan hospital has found that 15 percent of its gastrointestinal cases are caused from hot pot-related incidents, creating a group of "hot pot patients."

You can buy Capsaicin in a jar. That's pure unadulterated chemical that makes hot peppers hot. I'm sure that the Chinese access to the stuff too. Hell, they probably synthesize the stuff in a lab in Shanghai.
