LG Electronics Canada Inc. is recalling its LG 150 mobile phone after being told it is no longer certified as meeting Industry Canada's standards for radio-frequency devices designed to be used near the human body. The South-Korean based electronics manufacturer said Tuesday it has issued a voluntary recall for the phone, the only one its makes that is affected by the announcement.
"LG has mobilized quickly in response to these findings on behalf of our customers," LG Electronics Canada president William Cho said in a statement.
"LG's preliminary testing indicates that only LG 150 phones from specific production runs may be affected by this issue."
While the issue affects only some of LG's 150 model phones, Cho said the company is recalling all of them in "a proactive approach" to the recall.
