Report Problems With Cell Phones, Electronics and Wireless Devices To The FDA

Did you know you can report adverse effects from devices under the authority of the FDA to the FDA?

When we get a prescription for a drug we get a long insert with reported side effects. Yet when we buy a cell phone we do not get a list of reported side effects. At the same time many people are reporting symptoms from technology use.

According to the FDA on their webpage on cell phones:

“Under the law, FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting consumer products such as cell phones and similar wireless devices before they can be sold, as it does with new drugs or medical devices. However, FDA does have the authority to take action if cell phones are shown to emit radiofrequency energy (RF) at a level that is hazardous to the user. In such a case, FDA could require cell phone manufacturers to notify users of the health hazard and to repair, replace or recall the phones so that the hazard no longer exists.” 

Please go to the FDA link to submit a report.  Details on the FDA Medwatch voluntary reporting  can be found here

Please also feel free to send a copy to EHT at info@ehtrust.org so we can keep track and call on the FDA  for a yearly report and analysis of these reports from the public.

The public deserves for the FDA to collect, analyze  and respond to these reports. Click here to access the report: https://www.fda.gov/downloads/AboutFDA/ReportsManualsForms/Forms/UCM163919.pdf
