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.

This is why we don't eat from love life fast food places. Last time I was in one many years ago I walked out just because of the way they were groomed, or lack of!

And just what does this have to deal with anything? This happened in GA, not CA a month ago. Who are you trying to vilify now? Who's paying you to push this nothing story on your readers? At least be up front and tell us it's a paid attack story instead of trying to deceive some of your readers (many of us know that kickbacks for stories has been a hollywood way of business since the invention of the moving picture). Have a nice day (really!)

Food poisoning from weed. Right....And pigs can fly and cows can speak fluent English.

I would have taken the blunt and said nothing. It's not like a ****roach was found in it or something. Jesus Christ, the amount of stupid people in this world is staggering.

Am I the only one who noticed that the burger did not have a single bite eaten from it, even after they found the joint. So how did this customer get food poisoning from a burger that they did NOT eat???!!??!!!

Makes you wonder how lax Wendy's is when it comes to sanitation when handling your food. Their employees could have just finished taking a dump without washing their hands and then preparing your food.
