If the interaction was this:
CBP: Do you have any food on you to declare?
Pax: Yeah, this sandwich.
CBP: oh, that's a problem - go over there to secondary inspection
In other words, if the pax 'fessed up' when asked instead of attempting to hide it, then I would not be terribly concerned. There's nothing wrong with having a hamburger on you so long as you tell them about it when asked.
This is not like someone I know who did not declare their food...and then drug dogs sniffed out the grilled beef that was in their luggage (seriously - grilled beef). They were sternly told not to do this again and have faced secondary screening most of the time since then.
Obviously, this is US CBP we're talking about, so it's all rather unpredictable, and if your friend is not a white man, that may change things. But generally, I wouldn't be concerned about a situation where something was properly declared and disposed of.
