Police have charged two McDonald's employees after a mother said that she found Suboxone in her son's Happy Meal box.

Police in Auburn said Wednesday they reviewed video surveillance footage and concluded the incident was the result of an accident by an employee.

They said an employee had the medication in a shirt pocket and bent over to retrieve something when it fell out, landing in the Happy Meal box.

Police said the employee who dropped the prescription had obtained it illegally from another employee earlier in the shift.

Both workers face drug charges and are due in court in November.

Police said McDonald's management cooperated with them in the investigation.
