Default Since When? Purina's new Grain-free line!

I'm scratching my head on this one, since when did Purina decide to make a grain-free line? I was looking around and saw mention of Purina in the puppy diet section so I poked around for the Performance line. I came across this:

It's about knowing exactly what your dog is eating- real, recognizable, natural ingredients you know and trust, plus essential nutrients. The ingredient list is simple, but the thought behind the recipe is not. Each ingredient is purposely selected and, when working together, deliver the natural nutrition and essential nutrients to help your dog live a full, healthy life. This Beyond Adventure recipe is a back to basics, protein-rich approach to support your dog's health.
