FREDERICTON, Canada (PIX11) — A man claims he found a dead mouse inside his McDonald’s coffee.

Ron Morais bought the coffee Monday and drank it while on his way to work, but had to stop when he got to the last sip.

“I always take the lid to get my last sip of coffee. And when I took the lid off, there was a little bit of a surprise in my coffee cup. It was a dead mouse,” Morais told CBC.

The man showed his co-workers who were also in disbelief.

“Unless I hadn’t been there and seen Ron drink all that coffee down to the last drop, I would have been like ‘You’re lying,’” Brad Peterson, one of Morais’ colleagues, told CBC.

Morais felt a “queasiness” in his stomach because of the incident. The man wants to find out how the rodent got into his cup and hopes it does not happen to anybody else.

McDonald’s Canada said there was “no evidence of pests” in the location Morais bought his coffee.

“We are continuing to investigate this isolated incident and have reached out to the customer to obtain the product sample,” the fast-food chain said in a statement to CBC.

“Until such time as we are able to collect all the necessary facts and laboratory results to conclude a full review, it would be inappropriate for us to comment further. Similarly we would also caution against jumping to conclusions until more details are available.”

    Don’t believe the hype…at some point while you’re drinking your coffee you’ll feel something of that weight bouncing around in your cup…dead or alive. I don’t believe his hungry *** for a minute.

        Not a McDonald’s employee, more like someone who knows how to apply critical thinking skills.

        1) The mouse would float.

        2) Even if this thing did originate from McDonald’s, there’s no way an employee would grab a cup from a stack (preventing a mouse from getting inside of it in the first place) and not notice a mouse in the cup when he/she filled it with coffee.

    You mean to say that whom ever made the cup of coffee did not look inside the cup before making it ,.hmmm the cup would have had a weight difference

    The cups are packed way too tight from the cup manufacturer to have a mouse between the cups. Bet this story gets changed during the investigation.

    Dude is lying like a rug. McDonalds keeps their cups stacked upside down. There is no way a mouse got in there unless he put it in there himself.
