Horizon and Bombardier Q400 grounding

So the Swedish press is reporting that the investigation results into the failure of the landing gear of have determined that wear on a certain bolt caused said bolt to come off and thus causing the problem.  The report is preliminary.  This Bombardier press release seems to indicate something similar.  Why do I care?  Because I fly from Seattle to Portland every week and often on the Q400 (in fact Horizon is simplifying their fleet and getting rid of their Q200s).
