I think I will take a break from eating tuna after learning – a man died Thursday after he was found cooked in an oven in an industrial steamer at the Bumble Bee Tuna Plant in California.

 The dead man was identified as Jose Melena, 62, a 6-year employee of Bumble Bee Foods

SANTA FE SPRINGS – A seafood plant employee died Thursday after he was cooked in an oven in an industrial accident, authorities said Friday.

Bumble Bee Foods officials identified the man as Jose Melena, a 6-year employee of the business.

He was 62 years old, according to Whittier police.

The incident took place shortly before 7 a.m. at Bumble Bee Foods, 13100 Arctic Circle, Whittier police officials said in a written statement.

The initial investigation indicated that, “he was fatally injured when he was cooked in an oven,” California Division of Occupational Safety and Health spokeswoman Erika Monterroza said. Cal-OSHA has launched an investigation into the the circumstances of what officials are calling an accident.

The cooking device that injured the man was described in coroner’s documents as a “steamer machine,” Dietz said.
