San Francisco – An explosion that killed 3 employees and injured 15 more at a Foxconn plant in China is not expected to delay production of Apple’s (NASD: AAPL) iPad 2 or other new Apple products set for production in the third quarter, CNET reported, citing an article in China Times that quoted Foxconn executives.

Since the explosion on Friday, production has been suspended while authorities investigate the incident.

The Wall Street Journal noted that Foxconn officials think the explosion could have been triggered by combustible dust in a polishing workshop.
