A Michigan woman has been jailed for three to seven years after opening fire at a McDonald's when staff twice failed to put bacon on her burgers.

Shaneka Torres, 30, became angry last February when the first burger she ordered at the restaurant's drive-through station was missing bacon. She was offered a free meal, but reached boiling point when that was also missing rashers.

Police said Torres then fired a shot through the restaurant. No one was injured.

Judge Paul Sullivan, sitting in Grand Rapids, sentenced her to one to five years for shooting at a building, plus two years for possessing a firearm during a felony.

Torres said she was sorry "but it's over and done with".
