Recalled Infant Sleepers

Every day, millions of kids are dropped off at child care facilities across the country by parents and caretakers who are looking forward to seeing them safe and sound at the end of the day. But new research found some dangerous recalled products are still in use at child care facilities across the country.
 

Beat High Bank Fees

Banks rely on consumer indifference when they raise fees. They count on consumers not shopping around. PIRG’s Big Banks, Bigger Fees reports routinely find that small banks and credit unions are not following the big banks’ lead; they still offer many free or low cost accounts.

Mayors, County Executives call for a federal effort to coordinate purchasing and distribution of medical equipment during the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis

Health experts say we don’t have enough ventilators--machines used to help people struggling to breathe--to treat the projected number of COVID-19 patients. Also, there's no coordination, so states are fighting with each other over supplies, and hospitals aren't getting what they need. That's why U.S. PIRG is gathering support from mayors and county executives across the country calling for the Trump Administration to use its emergency powers to double the ventilator supply and to centrally distribute those materials, along with other critical medical supplies like masks and gloves.
