The Consumer Reports Online database contains the complete text of all articles and product recalls in the 12 regular monthly issues of Consumer Reports magazine, the 12 monthly issues of two newsletters, Consumer Reports Travel Letter and Consumer Reports on Health.  You can access the website at Consumer Reports Online.

Consumer Reports is an independent, nonprofit member organization that works side by side with consumers for truth, transparency, and fairness in the marketplace. In addition to our rigorous research, investigative journalism, and consumer advocacy, we work with other organizations, including media, consumer groups, research and testing consortium, and philanthropic partners to inform purchase decisions, improve the products and services that businesses deliver, and drive regulatory and fair competitive practices.

We also license our content and testing and research data, as well as work with business partners to offer shopping and other consumer services, and may receive fees from these programs. We maintain a strict separation between our commercial operations and our testing and editorial operations. Our testing and editorial teams decide which products to test and review; our external business partners or other third parties do not dictate or control these decisions.

In today’s rapidly evolving world, what we do at Consumer Reports must be transformative and groundbreaking as the new technologies, products and services entering people’s lives every day. We are passionate about our work because we know how much is at stake for you. We succeed in our mission every time your family gets a little bit safer, your finances get more secure, new technologies get more trustworthy, and the future gets that much brighter. Together we are creating a safe, fair, and transparent marketplace.
