But are these common household products really as eco-conscious - or as safe - as you think? Erica Johnson investigates so-called ""green"" household products, putting them to the test, and uncovering surprising truths about some popular brands. She counts down ten products which deserve a Lousy Label for their claims to be greener and safer." Air Date : 14th-Sep-2012  Read More

Season 40 Episode 2 - When The Repairman Knocks: Pools

"Marketplace is back at it again, putting home repairmen to the test.

How would you know if they're really doing a good job? Can you trust them to fix your problem? Is your money well spent? Or will you be sunk? When it comes to testing pool repairmen, Marketplace didn't find much depth." Air Date : 21st-Sep-2012  Read More

Season 40 Episode 3 - Fighting for Fido

Thousands of dogs are ill or dying across North America and it's been going on for years. No one can say what, exactly, made the dogs sick. But owners say they fed their dogs a seemingly harmless product: a popular chicken jerky treat. There are warnings on both sides of the border about the treats, which are made in China and marketed by some of the biggest pet food companies. But there is no definitive link between the treats and the illness. And there have been no recalls. Tom Harrington is on the trail of the mysterious illness, putting the treats to the test, and asking questions about a product that is not regulated in Canada. We ask: when things go wrong, who is fighting for Fido? Air Date : 28th-Sep-2012  Read More
