“One Chip Challenge” makers Paqui remove dare from website after teen’s death

BOSTON (WBZ) — The makers of the “One Chip Challenge” are changing how they advertise the spicy tortilla chip after the death of a Worcester teenager.

Paqui has removed the language on its website daring people to eat the chip and then wait as long as possible before eating or drinking.

The parents of 14-year-old Harris Wolobah say he died after trying the challenge on September 1. They are now waiting for the results of an autopsy.
