• New Green Sriracha Heats Up Competition for Rooster Brand

    Could a new green sriracha unseat the famous red rooster sauce as a favorite condiment of spice lovers everywhere?

    Midori Green Sriracha, sold by N.Y.-based Musahi foods, calls its sauce a "unique Japanese interpretation of the classic sauce." Company president Gideon Sarraf told ABC News his creation is made from green chilies, which he called "a little hotter and more flavorful than jalapenos," and rice vinegar, among other "natural ingredients."

    Sarraf said his sriracha is also thicker than the famous Huy Fong Foods red sauce.

    Sarraf took shipment of the first green sriracha about 30 days ago, he said. It was something he had been making for himself for a while, and he just had a feeling if he could get the word out on the product the "marketing would do itself." His company is just six months old.

    Right he was. Since the fist news story on his product appeared Monday, the response has been tremendous. After getting off to a slow start in the first few weeks, the company is now

  • Justin Bieber Apologizes 'To Anyone I Have Offended' For Honoring Notorious Shrine

    Only problem was that the Yasukuni Shrine was founded in the late 1800's and honors more than 2 million Japanese who died in combat from the Boshin War in 1868 through the end of World War II. But it also honors convicted war criminals that are categorized Class A -- crimes against peace -- stemming from mass murders across Asia during World War II.

    After Chinese fans urged Bieber to take his positive tweet down, he did so and posted an apology on Wednesday morning.

    "While in Japan I asked my driver to pull over for which I saw a beautiful shrine," he wrote. "I was mislead to think the shrines were only a place of prayer. To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry. I love you China and I love you Japan."

  • A frightening scene erupted in suburban Long Island, N.Y., when dozens of SWAT team members charged towards a home on Tuesday after they received a call that an armed man with multiple victims was inside.

    Instead of finding a crazed killer inside the home, the SWAT team members found themselves caught in a hoax known as "swatting."

    "Swatting are hoax calls calling out SWAT teams to make-believe, typically hostage-barricade murder situations," explained Brad Garrett, ABC News' crime and terrorism analyst.

    The target of the hoax in this case was a 17-year-old boy who had been playing the online video game "Call of Duty" inside the home, police said.

    When the boy, who was not identified, reportedly beat his opponent at the game, the opponent called the police pretending to be the boy and claiming he'd killed his mother and brother, police said.

    "They actually have a system, I believe, where they get points for the type of tactical response the police give, if the helicopters are
