Foxconn closes polishing plants for inspection - impact on Ipad production still not clear


   CNN-Fortune  is reporting that the blasts were in fact the result of dust buildup in the vents at the plant and that the death toll from the blast has now risen to three. 

     The Chinese government has imposed a media blackout and the polishing plants have been closed while inspections take place. This will likely have little impact on the Ipad 2 supply in the short term but extended closing of the plant could lead to a shortage in the longer term.
