Well - it seems extremely unlikely to me that these things actually radiate any 
RF (part 15 warnings notwithstanding). The potential problem will be 

They are required, by law, in new construction where the branch circuit has an 
outlet in the bedroom (in my county and probably mosst other places). 

You won't be able to put a low pass filter on them because they need to detect 
HF energy to work. Most you could do is slip some ferrite on for common mode 
attenuation (I suppose).

This will a good way to convince the XYL that there is no room for a guest bed 
in the new hamshack....
