This isn't the first time that Crayola has retired colours in their lineup, in 1990 eight shades were retired and replaced with new ones (including the dandelion shade). In 2003 four other colours were taken out and new ones added.
If you're a fan of this particular shade I suggest picking up a crayon box while they last.
