In case you were thinking you were having a bad day.

Los Angeles (CNN) - California authorities are investigating the death of a worker in an oven at a Los Angeles-area tuna processing plant.

The victim, Jose Melena, was cooked to death in a steam oven at the Bumble Bee Foods plant in Santa Fe Springs on Thursday, said Erika Monterroza, a spokeswoman for the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health.

Melena was a six-year veteran of the plant, which was shut down until Monday, the company said.

"The entire Bumble Bee Foods family is saddened by the tragic loss of our colleague, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Melena family," the company said.

Monterroza said she could not disclose further details. Worker fatality investigations typically take three to four months to complete.

The plant is about 18 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles. It processes and cans tuna loin.

Melena's job involved pushing baskets of sealed cans into a pressure cooker, and he was considered a skilled and knowledgeable employee, Pat Menke, the company's vice president for human resources, told CNN. The process sterilizes the canned tuna, which is then cooled, dried, labeled and inspected before being shipped to stores, Menke said.

Reminds me of a story

God goes down to the garden of eden and sees Adam all by himself. He asks where is Eve? Adam says she is bathing in the stream but not to go down there because she isn't wearing anything. God says aw shit those fish will never get rid of that smell.

Blind guy employed by a logging company could identify wood just by smelling it. The guys decide to play a joke on him and have his secretary sit down on a piece of oak. They ask him to identify the wood. He says, "Very funny assholes! That's a shit-house door off of a tuna schooner!"

But in all seriousness, if this was intentional, I wonder what the reason was. Maybe he was afraid of getting canned?
