SEOUL, Jan 28, 2009 (AsiaPulse via COMTEX) -- LGEPF

The Canadian subsidiary of LG Electronics Inc. (KSE:06657), the world's fifth-largest handset maker, said Wednesday it is recalling an undisclosed number of cellphones sold in Canada over health concerns.

LG Electronics Canada said on its Web site that it had agreed to a Canadian government-advised recall for the LG 150 mobile phone after it was found to emit electromagnetic radiation higher than a permissible level.

Company recalls LG 150 cellphones

Letter to the Editor,

The article, "Company recalls LG 150 cellphones", by Chris Sorensen
(Toronto Star, January 28, 2009) [ //www.thestar.com/Business/article/578317 ] clearly indicates that Health Canada is no longer in the business of protecting the health of Canadians. The "voluntary" recall by LG Canada was a responsible reaction to their cell phones exceeding federal guidelines for microwave emissions. The statement by Health Canada, namely that "the past and present use of the LG 150 should not pose immediate or long-term health concerns" is clearly irresponsible. This statement comes in sharp contrast to the warnings from other countries to restrict cell phone use, especially by children, and in sharp contrast to a growing number of countries reducing their maximum exposure limits based on scientific studies showing an increased risk of tumors after 10 years of moderate to high cell phone use. Why do we have these guidelines if they are not enforced? Why do other countries have guidelines that are much lower than those in Canada? Why is Health Canada more concerned about protecting the health of the cell phone industry than it is about protecting the health of Canadians? At what stage should the name of Health Canada be changed to reflect what it is truly doing . . . protecting the interests of big business?
