David Smith plead guilty to one charge of "improper meat storage" on Tuesday, for allowing 12 million pounds of animal flesh to reside in unclean conditions. More than five rats were being caught and killed each day at the mammoth West Side facility -- just imagine the ones that got away. Apparently, the meat was destined for "high-quality" restaurants in the Chicagoland area. Close to $7.5million in meat had to be destroyed.
