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 t’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.

Wow, what a terrible way to die.

These industrial steamers are massive, often several stories high.

Reporters asked the dead man how he came to die in a fish steamer, but he just clammed up.

The family has a big settlement to the tuna millions of dollars in the can! No need to hire a shark shyster.

The guy really got steamed because he heard that he was going to get canned. (I stole that)

The state department has launched an investigation into the accident.

Is that standard procedure for industrial accidents?
