Peninsula Premier Admin

if you thought fast food can’t get expensive, think again. *** passenger traveling to Australia from bali was fined *** total of $2664 which is 1000 849 in U. S. Currency for bringing in *** pair of undeclared Mcdonald’s egg and beef sausage Mcmuffins according to travel and leisure. The breakfast sandwiches were sniffed out by Zinta, *** detector dog who coincidentally was probably thinking she’d kill for us sausage, egg, mcmuffin and had her prayers answered. But like many countries, Australia has very strict biosecurity laws and in *** statement made by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Minister, Murray watt said Australia is foot and mouth disease free and we want it to stay that way. It’s wonderful to see that Zinta, the dog is already contributing to keeping the country safe. According to Australian government guidance, food from other countries can carry *** host of exotic pests and diseases that can harm Australian environment and industries. Mcdonald’s is the owner of 38,000 locations in over 100 countries worldwide. In Australia, there are currently 981 locations. Maybe the Mcmuffins in bali have some special sauce in them, but I’m certain it wasn’t worth thousands of dollars. Keep this story in mind next time you travel and maybe finish your food before you leave the plane
