Rat-tainted chicken was sold in Newark store
This is just horrifying.

A Newark man pleaded guilty in federal court today to wholesaling poultry from a store in the city’s Ironbound section that had been gnawed on by rats and tainted with rodent feces, urine and hair, authorities said.

Ben A. Abit, the owner of Triple A Foods and Cosmetics, an African specialty wholesaler and retailer on Joseph Street, admitted that on Aug. 8, 2006, he had 6,600 pounds of frozen chicken in his cooler that had visibly been picked over by rats.
