Current and former McDonald's employees: Is there any reprimand or pay docked if you accidentally give a drive-through customer more then the food they ordered?

Long story! So I went through McDonald's the other day, and ended up with 20 more nuggets, 1 Big Mac, and 1 Medium Fry on top of everything else I ordered. It looks like she handed me an extra bag. I felt HORRIBLE when I realized it, because I feel like I had stolen it. It was probably a good $10 more then I paid for, not to mention the inconvenience to the restaurant and the driver who was supposed to get the food instead of me.
By and large I know it was a minor thing and that McDonald's 1. isn't hurting for money; and 2. this is exactly what comped stuff is for.
But my concern is that the worker will have her pay docked or she will receive a reprimand. Do you think she will?
