Are There Any Risk Factors Associated With RFID?

A study conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Center for Devices and Radiological Health, and published in the HeartRhythm Journal in 2010, noted that interrogators of passive RFID tags could cause some electromagnetic interference to implantable pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), but that the devices posed no urgent health risks. The study's authors believed that the "continued proliferation of RFID without taking implantable pacemaker and ICD EMC into consideration could potentially cause clinically significant events for patients" (see Study Finds RFID Readers May Affect Pacemakers, But Pose No Urgent Risk).
