EXCLUSIVE

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.

I live near a Wendy's, it's filthy. Went there once, and never again. Not surprised to hear about things falling in the food. Same as how I wouldn't be surprised if it were Taco Bell.

Hospitalized!?! This person knows the makings of a very nice out-of-court settlement. Hard to believe a lawsuit hasn't been filed yet, but one will be...guaranteed.

my 2 cents    

Here 's why the customer was correct in going to the hospital. The joint could have been loaded up with other drugs, besides pot. We also don't know if the customer had other health issues that could have been compromised.

Just My Opinion    

Oh, nice. now monkey see monkey do, and no I am not using a slur here. I am saying that it seems like when you hear of one person doing this, then you hear another brain fry moron trying to do something too!
I mean we have seen videos of people pissing in customers food, and now this! Makes you want to eat at home, and if you don't want to cook,or can't, then buy frozen dinners.

How in the hell did she have food poisoning if the hamburger looks like it wasn’t eaten? Sounds like she’s just another leech trying to get money she doesn’t deserve.

She called 9-1-1 over THAT? It's not like she found a finger or feces. If the skank wanted money, they most likely would've offered her a lot more just to keep her quiet. What a moron. And seriously? Food poisoning? Hospitalization? She probably got sick from something else, made herself sick on purpose, or it was mental. Because I seriously doubt she got sick from ingesting a bit of marijuana; though, I doubt she actually swallowed any at all, unless she's stupid or wasn't paying attention). -_-

Almost better than the David Hasselhoff Wendy's burger incident.
Must've been pretty strong to stash it in a burger! Oops!
In VT now she would have gotten a ticket only, but probably fired.
