Jessica Simpson Hardest Hit

The former head of Bumble Bee Tuna has been sentenced to federal pound-you-in-the-ass prison after being convicted of price fixing. Is that why I’m paying through the nose for tuna?!!

The former CEO of Bumble Bee Foods was sentenced to more than three years in federal prison for his role in a conspiracy to fix the price of canned tuna.

Christopher Lischewski had been convicted of one felony count in the fishy scheme — which affected more than $600 million dollars of canned tuna sales, the U.S. Department of Justice said.

Federal prosecutors said that, from November 2010 to December 2013, Lischewski conspired with other big fish at Bumble Bee and rivals in the industry to wipe out competition by setting the cost of packaged seafood.

Now where is poor Jessica going to get her chicken? The mind reels.

Obligatory Office Space clip…

  1. Well, the fish rots from the head down. (I thought I’d add one more bad joke to the article. It netted a few puns in the story.)

    I am really sad to hear Bumble Bee Tuna filed for bankruptcy protection. Their solid white, packed in oil tuna was the best (my opinion) on the market.
