Thursday morning (Oct. 11), just before 7am, 62-year-old Jose Melena was found dead at a Southern California seafood plant for tuna maker Bumble Bee Foods. Somehow, Melena got trapped inside a cooking device called a steamer machine. The state has launched an investigation concerning the accident and will hopefully find some answers. What a horrible way to go.

 

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. (Oct. 15 РToday!)
