Wendy's Employee


... Gets Arrested, Fired

12/5/2013 6:48 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "burger joint" -- TMZ has learned, a Wendy's employee was arrested last month in Georgia ... after allegedly making a cheeseburger with one crazy off-the-menu ingredient ... marijuana.

According to the Lovejoy Police Department, 32-year-old Amy Seiber was busted during her shift on November 1 ... after a customer called 911, complaining she had found a half-smoked blunt in her cheeseburger.

The customer met with police at the Wendy's location where she ordered the burger, and cops claim Seiber immediately admitted the blunt was hers.

According to police, Seiber said she had been smoking pot on the job and conveniently "misplaced" the blunt inside the customer's burger ... right on top of the pickle.

The blunt was taken as evidence and Seiber was arrested for possession of marijuana ... oh yeah, she was also promptly fired.

We spoke to the lucky customer, who tells us she experienced food poisoning-type symptoms after the incident and had to be hospitalized. 

So far, she says Wendy's has offered to help pay for her medical bills ... and has even generously thrown in a $50 gift certificate. Like she'll ever eat at Wendy's ever again. 

A rep for Wendy's tells TMZ, "Obviously the employee broke the rules and did not follow proper food handling steps ... We are deeply sorry that this incident occurred.” The rep says the franchisee is working out a favorable solution with the customer, including paying her medical bills.

The picture shows an uneaten burger, but she says that she had food poisoning like symptoms? Did she take the pictures of the blunt burger and then eat it anyway?? That makes no sense.

This story makes me sick. Bad enough you're making no money in a fast food joint but then some ahole rats you out to the pigs. I smoke weed every day legally and I live in the US. It's madness. Legalize pot!!!

Sounds like the customer is seeing this is a big cash opportunity, and by the looks of the perp, she probably was looking for an excuse to quit and go back on the welfare.

She didn't actually eat any of it. How is she having symptoms? What did she lose? Gas money to and from the rest? The litigious nature of this country is getting out of hand.

Anyone who needs medical attention after chomping on a half smoked joint is engaging in blatant fraud. Too bad you didn't identify the "victim"

Wait a minute. The burger is INTACT. HOW did she get hospitalized for food poisoning symptoms from something she didn't consume? Also, had she consumed it, how would the symptoms be those of FOOD poisoning? Marijuana does not mimic those symptoms which include vomiting, bowel issues, fever, etc. and there's a 1-3 day incubation period. I call BULL**** on this. While, I agree that it's disgusting to find a half smoked anything in your FOOD, I sincerely doubt this customers medical issues are a result of this incident. Especially since the food doesn't appear to have been ingested.

Food poisoning!? Oh please! Sounds like she's just trying to get some free money by making up some BS. I have ate food with marijuana in it And smoke it everyday and have never gotten sick! It actually makes me feel better when I'm feeling like ****. What a fool!
