BROOKLYN - Red Bull has been hit with an $85 million lawsuit alleging that the energy drink led to the death of a Brooklyn man.

According to the lawsuit, 33-year-old Cory Terry suffered a heart attack after drinking a Red Bull beverage.

Red Bull issued a statement saying in part, "We do not comment on particular legal matters. An 8.4 ounce can of Red Bull energy drink contains 80 milligrams of caffeine, about the equivalent amount of caffeine as a cup of home-brewed coffee."

It added that Red Bull is available in 165 countries because health authorities have concluded that it's safe to consume.
