Several years ago, there was a FAA mandated inspection of the attachment
bolts for overhead bins.  IIRC, this was because of the British Midland
crash (and several others) where the overhead bin attach bolts failed.
At the same time, counterfeit aircraft fasteners were a growing FAA
concern.  Thus the inspection, which affected a large portion of the
commercial fleet.
