Consumers may not think of household cleaning products to be hazardous substances, but many of them can be harmful to health, especially if they are used improperly.
(A) Consumers may not think of household cleaning products to be
(B) Consumers may not think of household cleaning products being
(C) A consumer may not think of their household cleaning products being
(D) A consumer may not think of household cleaning products as
(E) Household cleaning products may not be thought of, by consumers, as

Why not E? I thought household cleaning products are the main character of the whole theme. So they should lead the sentences. Besides, the last sentence is passive voice, so the first sentence should be the same to make them parallel.

what does "them" refer to in E?

cleaning products or consumers In D, using the singular "consumer" eliminates this ambiguity. thats why D is better than E
