An unnamed airplane passenger was fined 2,664 Australian dollars ($1,874) for bringing in two egg and beef sausage McDonald’s McMuffins and a ham croissant into the country without declaring them during a customs check. The passenger was flying from Bali, Indonesia to Australia’s Darwin Airport, according to a CNN report.
“This will be the most expensive Maccas meal this passenger ever has,” Murray Watt, minister for agriculture, fisheries and forestry, said in a public statement. “This fine is twice the cost of an airfare to Bali, but I have no sympathy for people who choose to disobey Australia’s strict biosecurity measures, and recent detections show you will be caught.”
The McDonald’s food was not the only hazard the passenger brought into the country, which included a range of undeclared products, according to the statement.
