The other day I was looking through my Sunday LA Times, reading some of the articles. After I read it give it to my neighbor, Jim. I go for the coupons, save ten bucks or so a month on the shampoo and soaps over at Rite Aid. This week I was checking out the coupons and noticed that one company that sells tuna has flavored tuna and coupons for two cans. They got Jalapeno, Lemon and Pepper, Sun Dried Tomato, Chipotle, Lemon Sesame, and Ginger, Sriracha, and Spicy Thai Chili flavored tunas. This is the same company where a man was accidently pressure cooked into 12,000 pounds of tuna in one of their ovens. I just cannot bring myself to use that coupon. They have replaced all the ovens and cleaned everything up; there is no trace of the poor guy who was cooked. There were some fake news reports stating the guy was cooked than packaged in cans with the tuna. I had eaten some of the tuna around that time and never noticed a difference in taste. As soon as it was discovered the worker was missing, he was found in the oven so the poor guy wasn’t packaged in the tuna at all.
I worked for a company years ago that packaged thin meats, and a worker was dragged into the slicer. What I heard from other workers is that they pulled the victim out of the slicers, hosed it off and put it back to work thin slicing meats. Back then there wasn’t as many regulations as there are now. Thank the Good Dog for safety regulations and unions too. The tuna company had to pay out over 6 million dollars in fines, and the family of the man killed only got 1.5 million. They should have got a lot more.
