"After seeing our most-hardened grillers in pain last year, we had to think long and hard whether we could even safely cook the Nuclear Double Decker Death Wish, let alone responsibly offer it to the public," he said.

"Last time, for our milder burger, we had three ambulances called to stores for chilli-induced panic attacks, so it's legitimately the hottest burger you can legally be served in Australia."

The burger will be on the menu for three weeks.

For more faint-hearted burger lovers, Burger Urge will continue to serve existing menu favourites, including its health-conscious vegetarian and vegan Nutritious Delicious range.
