A passenger has been fined nearly $2,000 after a sniffer dog found a trio of undeclared McDonald’s breakfast sandwiches in their luggage.

According to USA Today, two egg and beef sausage McMuffins and a ham croissant were found in the passenger’s backpack upon arrival in Australia from Indonesia, prompting the severe monetary fine.

Australia implemented new biosecurity rules after Indonesia’s Foot and Mouth disease spread to Bali. According to USA Today, the meats will be tested for Foot and Mouth disease before they are destroyed.

“This will be the most expensive Maccas meal this passenger ever has, 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,” Minister Murray Watt said in a press release reported by USA Today.

“Australia is FMD-free, and we want it to stay that way,” Murray said.

“Biosecurity is no joke – it helps protect jobs, our farms, food and supports the economy. Passengers who choose to travel need to make sure they are fulfilling the conditions to enter Australia, by following all biosecurity measures.”
