A California Court Says ‘No.’
According to the San Francisco Chronicle for September 10,
A federal appeals court blocked San Francisco on Monday from requiring cell phone dealers to tell customers the products may expose them to dangerous levels of radiation, saying the city can’t force retailers to pass along messages they dispute.
The ordinance, the first of its kind in the nation, had been scheduled to take effect last October, but has remained on hold during an industry challenge.

Cell Phone Right to Know Act
Just days before, on Aug. 6, 2012, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, a democrat from Ohio, had introduced a federal bill that would put warning labels on cell phones and create a national research program to study cell phone radiation levels.
H.R. 6358, named the Cell Phone Right to Know Act, would also require the Environmental Protection Agency to update the standards for specific absorption rate, or SAR, the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a cell phone.
