LG Canada recalls LG 150 mobile phone

LG Canada is voluntarily recalling some 45,000 LG 150 mobile phones after it was decertified by Industry Canada. The LG 150 failed a radio frequency exposure test performed recently. Specifically, it failed the Radio Standards Specifications 102 (RSS 102), Radio Frequency Exposure Compliance of Radiocommunication Apparatus.

Fortunately, Health Canada has determined that the past and current use of the LG 150 should not pose immediate or long-term health concerns

The LG 150 was sold in Canada by Bell Mobility, including partners such as Virgin Mobile, MTS Allstream, SaskTel, Aliant Mobility, KMTS, NorthernTel, Sogetel, Télébec and TBayTel. Customers should contact their carrier to arrange an exchange for a comparable LG model. The exchange program will run until March 31, 2009.
