The plane passenger paid £1,500 for the world’s most expensive McDonald’s – he only got two McMuffins and a croissant

A hungry traveler was forced to pay £1,500 for a McDonald’s breakfast after he was caught with an undeclared meal at an airport.

After touching down back from Bali in Australia, an airport dog smelled McMuffins when a plane passenger’s pocket broke loose.

The passenger had stuffed breakfast into his bag – but potential foot-and-mouth disease carriers were tracked down to Darwin Airport amid border crackdowns on airport dogs.

As the meal was undeclared, the passenger was fined £1,500 – twice the price of their plane ticket.

To prevent food and mouth disease from entering the country, fines have been imposed in Australia for undeclared meat and dairy products.

Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Minister Murray Watt told 7News: “Two eggs and beef sausage McMuffins and a ham croissant from McDonald’s in Bali were objectionable menu items that caught the attention of biosecurity sleuth Zinta.

“Detector Doug Zinta replied to a passenger’s backpack and upon further investigation, it was found that they were carrying a variety of risky items.

“This will be the most expensive Macaque meal ever for this traveler.

“The fine is twice the cost of airfare to Bali, but I have no sympathy for those who choose to disregard Australia’s strict biosecurity measures, and have only recently learned that you will be caught.”

Watt said the passenger had been issued a “12-unit violation notice” for failing to declare an item with a potentially high biosafety risk and for providing a false and misleading document.

Undeclared food was inspected and then destroyed.

Watt said: “Biosecurity is no joke – it helps protect jobs, our farms, food, and support the economy.

“Travellers who choose to travel need to ensure that they are meeting the conditions for entering Australia by following all biosecurity measures.
