A passenger flying from Bali, Indonesia to Darwin, Australia was fined A$2,664 (about $1,846) last week after he was caught with two Egg and Beef McMuffins and a Ham Croissant upon arrival in Australia.
The meat products were sniffed out by a newly trained biosecurity detection dog named Zinta.
"This is the most expensive [McDonald's] meal a passenger has, this fine is double the price of a flight to Bali,...
...but I have no sympathy for people who choose to disregard Australia's strict biosecurity measures and the new findings show you will be caught,"...
...he said in a press release Australian Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Murray Watt said in a report.
Australia has strict policies for importing food products in an effort to prevent foot-and-mouth disease from leaving the country.
A passenger was heavily fined after failing to declare that he had meat products.
The meal also includes some travel-safe warm cakes, as per the photo of the seized breakfast.
"Biosecurity is no joke – it helps protect jobs, our farms, our food and supports the economy," Watt said in a news release.
"Passengers who choose to travel should ensure they meet the conditions of entry into Australia by following all biosecurity measures."
Seized meat is inspected mouth and mouth before destruction.
Zinta is funded by the Australian Government's AU14 million biosecurity package.
Funding went to biosecurity monitoring at postal centers and airports, including dogs at some airports.
