Induction cooktops

We currently have a gas cooktop and have considered changing to induction but as my husband now has a pacemaker we have found that the magnets in an induction cooktop can/do affect pacemakers and people with them should not have induction cooktops.
This information came with the information about pacemakers but I have not seen this referred to in the general discussion about what cooktops to choose.
Who knows when a health event may lead to the requirement for a pacemaker.
I think this should be factored in to what to chose, particularly for older people.

Fisher and Paykel Elba Cook top CE604CW3

Have bought from Noel Leeming and had installed at great expense the above ceramic cooktop. The installer said the hole in bench was too small. $366 for a stainless steel surround. Then as the installer made his second trip to install it measured again and found that the cooktop is too small not the bench hole too big. Have written an email with details but how does one email consumer?
