Mountain Dew, a yellow drink that is packed with caffeine, is consumed by thousands of people each day. The drinkers of the soda will not find out, thanks to a new lawsuit, about what else is in the drink.

The drink’s manufacturer is PepsiCo, which is being sued by Ronald Ball of Wisconsin. Ball claims in a lawsuit back in 2009 that when he opened a can of Mountain Dew that he purchased from a vending machine, something inside the can did not taste right. Ball then claims that he spit out a dead mouse.

The lawsuit documents show that Ball is seeking damages of $50,000 or more. The lawsuit also says that Ball sent the mouse to Pepsi, which ultimately destroyed it.

Pepsi is working to dismiss the case based on testimony from an expert who claims that the acid used to bottle the drink would have caused the body of the mouse to become jelly.

Another ingredient used in Mountain Dew is brominated vegetable oil (BVO), which is banned from use in Japan and Europe, but allowed in small quantities of beverages like Squirt, Fanta Orange, and Mountain Dew.
