    Stay away from BumbleBee tinned tuna....

    A factory worker was tragically cooked alive in an industrial oven alongside several tons of tuna

    Jose Melena had been busy cleaning a 35-foot-long industrial oven at Bumble Bee Foods when a co-worker, believing Jose to be in the bathroom, filled the pressure cooker with over five tonnes of canned tuna.

    The factory worker was trapped inside the machine when it was switched on.

    When a supervisor noticed that the 62-year-old was missing, an announcement was made over the intercom and colleagues quickly began to search for him.

    His body was found two hours later when the pressure cooker, which reached temperatures of 132C, was switched off and opened.

    Now Bumble Bee Foods, its plant operations director Angel Rodriguez and former safety manager Saul Florez have been charged with three counts of violating health and safety rules.

    ^ I heard it was a mincer he fell in to?

    Gonna see if I can find a source (no ketchup jokes, you sick buggers).

    --EDIT--

    My bad. The story I was thinking of was the Burmese dude who fell into a grinder at a pet food place down Chonburi way yesterday.

    A series of unfortunate events led to a Burmese man falling into a meat grinder at a pet food factory southeast of Bangkok.
    Identified as Sor, the 37-year-old man was working on the grinding machine at the Pet Smart Co. in Chonburi province when he somehow got dragged inside it and was ground up.

    Why would he fill the oven with canned tuna?

    Was wondering why my dogs all of a sudden have been real keen on that Pet Smart brand!

    Reminds me of the fish shop where my old man used to buy his fish...turns out they stashed a murder victim in the freezer for a couple of years. Fish did taste nice and tangy mind...
