They are not being discontinued. They are just not being shipped to other countries. Apparently they seeem to clog pipes in some washing machines creating expensive plumbing and appliance repair bills. They are also being blamed for some dryer issues too. I called a J&J rep after ordering them on Amazon and not being able to ship them APO. I didn't ask about Canada but this may be a logical explanation as to why they are not carried there anymore. I brought Carbona Dye Catchers instead. They are supposed to be used for up to 30 washes and they ship to APO addresses with no problems.
