Website Consumer Reports
For over 85 years, Consumer Reports has worked to create a more fair and just marketplace through our investigative journalism, product testing, and advocacy for policies that keep products and services safe, fairly priced, and reliable. Today’s products are safer, and consumers can shop smarter, thanks to the work we do every day at Consumer Reports.
In just the past decade, we helped to protect infants from arsenic in cereal, end hidden cable TV fees, and championed the creation of a new financial watchdog for consumers. We got millions of dangerous infant sleepers pulled off the market, and we’re working for strong standards for new cars and trucks, so we can save money with better mileage, while reducing climate pollution.
