I have been a subscriber to CHOICE for 40 years. In the current issue, for the first time that I can remember, CHOICE is recommending in its test of earplugs, the top three all of which are labelled as “not sold in Australia”.
What does this mean? Is CHOICE now going to include products not available in Australia in all their tests?
Consumers in Australia are entitled to expect that the Australian Consumers Association will test products available in Australia. Equivalent Associations in other countries can look after the interests of their own subscribers. In reality I understand that we are all purchasing from overseas , but I don’t believe that ACA should be spending money on testing and promoting products not sold in Australia.
