Yes, there's a reason the FDA requires microwave ovens to be shielded.

Its not the FDA that requires it. The FCC does.

The FCC is the gov't entity that regulates em radiation emissions from any electronic device. The FDA may have supplemental regulations, but any electronic device must at least comply with part 15 of the FCC rules which specifically applies to EM radiation, and interference to and from other electronic devices.

I had no idea. From the link:
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has the responsibility for carrying out an electronic product radiation control program mandated by the Electronic Product Radiation Control provisions of the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act. Through its Center for Devices and Radiological Health, FDA sets and enforces standards of performance for electronic products to assure that radiation emissions do not pose a hazard to public health.

I thought that responsibility belonged to another government agency, not FDA or FCC. FCC certainly has jurisdiction regarding radio emissions interfering with electronic equipment, but how does FDA get involved?

The only way I could see that the FDA could get involved, is because it is an appliance that involves food preparation. Even then I would think that they would be limited to the appliance's impact on the food itself, I.E., if it leaves any detectable trace of radiation on food, etc. I would think that EM radiation from the device would fall under the jurisdiction of the FCC, or the CPSC.

The FDA got the responsibility for electronic products that emit radiation. That's how it got laser pointers, DVD readers, television sets, suntanning lamps, and microwave ovens.

We know, or should know, it regulates products that account for 25 cents out of every consumer dollar spent, from the food we eat to the cosmetics we use to the drugs and medical devices that keep us alive. Add vaccines, blood, tobacco, animal drugs, even animal feed.

But there are little-known things it regulates, too. Things like pet turtles, pig bristle shaving brushes, parakeets and cockatiels, cruise ship and airline food preparation facilties, and much more.
