Look I get you were annoyed but I feel bad for her. She shouldn't have put the honey on the dummy, but the risk of botulism is extremely low to non existent. She clearly felt terrible, you have deliberately ignored her so her anxiety and guilt has escalated. She obviously cares for you and your child.
Sorry but I think while she shouldn't have done it you've also handled it badly. You need to either end the friendship or get over it and have a cuppa and a chat.

I had a similar situation when DS was about the same age. MIL dipped his dummy in honey because he was cranky. I was so upset and worried. I took the passive aggressive route and linked an article on Facebook about infant botulism and tagged her in it because I was too scared to confront her.
With your friend, it really does sound like she's upset both at what she did and the fact that she might lose your friendship. I agree with everyone else that you should talk in person.

Can I ask why you ignored her texts? Were you still peeved or were you busy? Or something else?
She's your friend who made a mistake so she reached out to you as she legitimately felt bad and you kind of threw it back in her face.
Please have a chat with her if you value her friendship. Unless of course you want the friendship to be over - in which case I think there's more at play here than just this one incident.
