But hey! at least it's dolphin safe tuna.....

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.

I got a buddy used to run Captain for Starkist on one of their tuna boats. The all-Korean crew used torture and dude-on-dude rape to enforce discipline, and guys (and boats) got disappeared at sea periodically. I'd rather go in the Bumblebee cooker, I think.

Did they throw out the tuna that was in the steamer? Or does the can say, "Flaked Light Tuna in water and human juice"?

Sorry Charlie, Star kist doesn't want tuna's with good taste, Star Kist wants Jose Melena who apparently tastes good...
