Last Thursday morning was like any other at the Bumble Bee Foods factory in Santa Fe Springs, California. That is, until a worker was found cooked to death in the industrial oven.
Jose Malena, 62, worked at the factory for more than six years. According to his co-workers, Malena was a pro around the heavy machinery and was well versed in safety at the factory. Still, a fellow worker found Malena trapped inside a “steamer machine” and immediately called 911.
An official investigation has begun to determine why Malena was in the oven. So far, the findings are that Malena “was fatally injured when he was cooked in an oven.”
Clearly, there is a team of geniuses on this one.
As of now, the goal of the investigation is to determine whether any safety regulations were violated, and if Bumble Bee owes any sort of compensation to the Malena family.
Bumble Bee mainly produces cans of tuna fish. Tuna production in previous years has been wracked with scandal over what is in the can. There was a discovery that several canning companies were using dolphins instead. With the discovery of Malena in the ovens, one wonders what Bumble Bee has been cramming in their cans.
