A Michigan family got a bit of a shock Tuesday when they ordered a kid's meal for their four-year old at a Burger King outside Detroit and found a marijuana pipe in the bag instead of the normal toy. 

According to the Dundee, Michigan, police, a 23-year-old store employee had been smoking during his shift and had hidden the pipe in a food box, but then accidentally served the box to the customers. 

The family, from suburban Detroit, called police as soon as they discovered the pipe. Police arrested the employee, who was charged with possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Two of the employee's friends, who were spotted in their car in the parking lot, were also arrested and charged with possession. 

As for the family, which had just returned from a fun day at the water park, at least they can take solace in the fact that all they found was a pot pipe, and not a razor blade or horsemeat
