"Wrap rage," The Times (London, England), February 4, 2004

Spokesman Allan Truman says every year more than 60,000 people need hospital treatment for injuries caused by grappling with food packaging. "About 2,000 accidents happen while people are trying to separate items of frozen food, usually with a knife."
