You might want to avoid Bumble Bee tuna for awhile

:) :cry:


SANTA FE SPRINGS (AP) — Authorities say a 62-year-old employee was cooked to death at a Southern California seafood plant for tuna maker Bumble Bee Foods.

The Whittier Daily News reports Jose Melena was found Thursday shortly before 7 a.m. at the plant in Santa Fe Springs.

California 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.”

The state department has launched an investigation into the accident.

In a written statement, Bumble Bee Foods spokesman Pat Menke expressed condolences to Melena’s family and says operations at the canning facility will be suspended at the plant until Monday.

He'd obviously misunderstood his comely coworker's invitation to some steamy sex. :mrgreen:

Apparently he was flakey to begin with, just not enough.
I just wanted to inform you that I find you to be very attractive. Thank you and have a nice day.
