AUSTRALIA — A hungry traveler may have just paid for the most expensive McDonald's breakfast ever.

The passenger, traveling from Indonesia to Australia, is being fined nearly $1,900 for leaving two undeclared sausage McMuffins, an order of pancakes, and a ham croissant in their luggage.

A biosecurity dog sniffed out the sandwiches, which due to local regulations, were sent to be tested for foot-and-mouth disease.

Australian authorities recently introduced new biosecurity rules after an outbreak of the disease in Indonesia spread to Bali.
