FreeHand herbicide MIA this spring?

Went by my JDL last week and wanted to get a couple bags of freehand and was told there wasn't any, and they don't know when it will be available. They said the manufacturer shut down production for 6 weeks and didn't have enough or any of that product produced when they did, so now we just get to wait if that's what we wanted to use...

I ended up just getting my usual Snapshot. Wanted to try freehand this spring due to the amount of nutsedge that is present in more and more of the beds I apply it in. Well, guess I'll zap it later in the summer again once it starts growing.

My distributor never even got back to me with pricing this year on Freehand, so I used Snapshot, reluctantly. Guessed something was up

I wonder if its being relabeled, but regardless seems like really poor timing / poor planning for a manufacturing shut down now
