Instructor: Amanda Robb
This infographic will help you visualize the five major consumer rights. By using this infographic, you'll have a visual representation that you can use to aid your own work and share the information with others.

What Are the Five Major Consumer Rights?

During the 1960's the public became increasingly distrustful of big businesses. As a response, President John F. Kennedy introduced the idea of consumer rights - a set of protections that encourage businesses to sell products and services that are beneficial and safe. Nixon later added a fifth consumer right. As you read in the lesson Five Major Consumer Rights you'll notice that the five major consumer rights are:

  1. Safety
  2. Information
  3. Choice
  4. Voice
  5. Redress

The infographic here represents these five rights for consumers. Infographics are useful ways to visually represent information. You can use them to aid in your own memory, or as a way to communicate this information with others.



The first major consumer right is safety. This means that products should be safe and consumers should be provided with enough information to use the product properly. Businesses are responsible for testing their products for safety as well.

The second consumer right is information. Consumers should be provided with information about how the product works, how to use it, and any important safety information.
