From the Center for Disease Control website, CDC - Botulism, General Information - NCZVED

"How common is botulism? In the United States, an average of 145 cases are reported each year.Of these, approximately 15% are foodborne, 65% are infant botulism, and 20% are wound. Adult intestinal colonization and iatrogenic botulism also occur, but rarely. Outbreaks of foodborne botulism involving two or more persons occur most years and are usually caused by home-canned foods. Most wound botulism cases are associated with black-tar heroin injection, especially in California"
on a population size comparison ratio you do have 4x the incidence per capita that we have in the uk so i can understand your concerns plus,if you take out the 20+ cases associated with the hazelnut yogurt which was clearly a manufacturing problem,there is practically a zero incidence over here,which is why i am not overly concerned.
but you & jenny are absolutely right to point it out & then it is up to the individual reading the post to make their decision

Statistics are all well and good but meaningless if you do something stupid that encourages botulism growth. Then you impact the stats for others to quote.

i guess capsaicin is alcohol soluble?
I got by Total Wine and Spirits yesterday and inquired about the possibility of them getting some in. They directed me to the Mexican beer section and now I have 2 six packs!
