The ADA released a statement regarding the use of these micro beads at http://www.ada.org/en/press-room/news-releases/2014-archive/september/statement-on-polyethylene-microbeads-in-toothpaste. We understand from P&G that the majority of their toothpaste products will be micro bead free by March 2015.
