Rake task dying in the middle of execution

I've deployed a Rails app to an Ubuntu droplet w/ dokku (installed manually). My app database entries are generated from a couple of .csv files via a rake task. When I run any of these tasks, they end up dying with the following (cryptic) output:

/tmp/bashenv.826794096: line 73: 128 Killed setuidgid "$unprivileged_user" "$@"

Sometimes the task dies immediately, sometimes it will run for a few iterations until it dies before finishing. I don't have this issue locally, so I think it might have something to do with Digital Ocean. Perhaps my droplet is running out of memory? Not sure, as the output above isn't super meaningful to me.
