Biting other kids

Got a note from preschool today that my almost 3 year old bit a kid's back today. She said he has been doing this the past two weeks when he gets angry. Anyone dealt with this before? I had a talk with him. Is this a phase or will it get worse?

Hi my son is a 3 and I needed a new stroller for him since he's getting bigger. I was looking at BOB strollers and the Joovy jogger. What do you think would be better for bigger kids?
