Worker Dies After Being Cooked In Tuna Plant Oven
Actually, it was probably in the process of being cooked in the oven, not after it. Unless he was Beyond All Cares and Woe when he was put in there, in which case it would be before...
Authorities say a 62-year-old employee was cooked to death at a Southern Caliphornia seafood plant for tuna maker Bumble Bee Foods.
Way up there among the least favored methods of departure from the gene pool...
The Whittier Daily News reports Jose Melena was found Thursday shortly before 7 a.m. at the plant in Santa Fe Springs. Caliphornia Division of Occupational Safety and Health spokeswoman Erika Monterroza says it's unclear how the man ended up inside a cooking device called a "steamer machine."
Yeah. Did he fall or was he pushed? What were Hansel and Gretel doing when the 'accident' occurred?
The state department has launched an investigation into the accident.
"Legume! The game's afoot! Get me my saxophone!"
In a written statement, Bumble Bee Foods front man Pat Menke expressed condolences to Melena's family and says operations at the canning facility will be suspended at the plant until Monday.
It'll take them that long to get the caked-on gravy out of the oven...
