Business briefs: Boeing 737s to be inspected

Eight U.S. carriers have been ordered to inspect 783 newer Boeing Co. (BA) 737s for loose or missing parts following a fire that destroyed a China Airlines plane last week. A loose wing-slat bolt that punctured the fuel tank has been reported as the likely cause of the Aug. 20 fire. The FAA received reports of at least two incidents where fuel leaks resulted when parts came loose on slats.

TOPPS CO.

Topps Co. (TOPP), the maker of baseball cards and Bazooka bubble gum, postponed a shareholder decision on a $384.5 million buyout by a group led by Michael Eisner, saying the offer would likely be rejected in a Thursday vote. The delay comes a week after Upper Deck Co. dropped a $416 million bid made in May. Tornante Co. offered $9.75 a share for Topps in March.
