Why'd they stop making manganese bronze putters?

I just started bagging my old Ping Dalehead, and it made me start thinking.  Why don't OEMs use manganese bronze anymore? Is it a health hazard like beryllium?

Either too expensive, or there is a health issue would be my guesses.

I see new ones once in awhile. We were at the Golf Center at Pawleys Island a few weeks ago, and they had some new ones. Not sure you still can't order them from Ping.
