In such a case, FDA could require the manufacturers of wireless phones to notify users of the health hazard and to repair, replace or recall the phones so that the hazard no longer exists.

While these base stations operate at higher power than do the wireless phones themselves, the wireless exposures that people get from these base stations are typically thousands of times lower than those they get from wireless phones.
