Safe Products for Our Everyday Lives

A life free from products that could harm you and your family should be a given, not a concern. Yet, everyday products are associated with at least 15.5 million injuries and 8,000 deaths per year. CR pushes manufacturers and the government to recall unsafe products and eliminate unsafe designs. We also work to ensure people are informed about product safety hazards, and empower them make safe choices and push for market and policy change.

Our Product Safety Team
The Consumers Union policy staff is dedicated to harnessing data and unbiased research to expose public health and safety issues, promote fairness in the marketplace, and help consumers make better choices.
