Oops! LG voluntarily recalling 45K LG 150 mobiles for lack of "certification"

Do you live or work in Canada? Do you enjoy LG cell phones? Are you a proud owner of the dead-simple LG 150? Then here’s lookin’ at you kid! Your trusty mobile device is the lucky winner of a 45,000 unit (voluntary – i.e. LG is doing you a “favor”) recall!

Apparently the LG 150 is “no longer certified as meeting the Radio Standards Specifications 102 (RSS 102), Radio Frequency Exposure Compliance of Radiocommunication Apparatus.”  But have no fear, according to Health Canada, “past and current use of the LG 150 should not pose immediate or long-term health concerns.” Phewww!

You have until March 31, 2009 to contact your respective mobile carrier (Bell Mobility, Virgin Mobile, MTS Allstream, SaskTel, Aliant Mobility, KMTS, NorthernTel, Sogetel, Télébec or TBayTel) to get a replacement handset at no cost. Or you can visit www.lg.ca/lg150 or call 1-866-940-6580.
