In some ways it has never been easier to be a consumer. Virtually any product can be viewed online, and is just a few clicks from arriving at our doors., But today’s marketplace is also full of hidden dangers that can threaten our health, safety and financial security. Unfortunately, regulators too often fail to identify and remove unsafe products, stop unfair practices or act to ensure a level playing field for consumers.
That’s why for more than 50 years, PIRG Consumer Watchdogs have been educating consumers about how to protect themselves and their rights. We’re working to prevent unsafe products from entering the marketplace, implementing new rules that could protect us from Illegal robocalls, fixing our broken food recall system, and getting consumers the tools they need to protect themselves from unfair travel practices.
