The dead were identified as Munna, 25, and Faruk, 24. The injured were rushed to a local hospital, Munshiganj Sadar police chief SA Newazi told bdnews24.com.
The Akiz Match Factory's 'cast iron roller' exploded just after midday, the police officer said.
The factory, located near Mukterpur Ghat on the Shitalakhya river, manufactures the 'Dolphin' brand of matches, he added.
