Does Size Matter? Only When They Touch: Package Size and Scale of Contamination

Predicated on the law of contagion and research on packaging size inferences, we establish that the magnitude of contamination strengthens as the package size of a target product increases. Our results show that contamination does scale with the size of packaging and offers a new way of confirming contamination manipulations.
