Description

"Smart Consumer Reports" is a weekly show that provides consumers with credible information for them to make rational choices through comparative experiments and analysis of consumer goods and services as consumers are the weak compared to producers and distributors. This episode covers the worst case of manufactured product in Korea, the humidifier sterilizer incident. The official recorded deaths are 146 from this incident and it's already been 5 years since the incident occurred. However, the government has been neglecting this incident and there has been no punishment for the manufacturer and compensation for the victims. This program reports such results and seeks for an institutional solution that can save the victims.
