FAQ: What are the fundamental rights of consumers?

In early 20th century America, consumers had limited rights when it came to purchasing goods and services and were also limited in their ability to defend themselves and pursue damages against businesses and manufacturers that sell faulty products or make misleading claims about their offerings. The basic rights that all American consumers are entitled to include:

  • The right to safety
  • The right to be informed
  • The right to choose
  • The right to be heard
  • The right to the satisfaction of basic needs
  • The right to redress
  • The right to consumer education
