OPINION

CHAD A. READLER, Circuit Judge. Plaintiffs believe they have been exposed to radioactive material released by a nuclear plant in Ohio. In an attempt to recover for harms that exposure allegedly caused, they asserted state law claims in state court against entities involved in the plant’s operations. The entities in turn removed the action to federal court and then argued that the Price-Anderson Act, which governs “any public liability action arising out of or resulting from a nuclear incident,” 42 U.S.C. § 2210(n)(2), preempts plaintiffs’ claims. The district court agreed and, because plaintiffs disavowed any theory of recovery under the Act, dismissed the case. We now affirm.
