What is the M&M candy color ratio these days?

According to this old Dartmouth Syllabus from 1994

M&M Mars consumer affairs states that the color ratio for the candy is

30% brown
20% yellow
20% red
10% orange
10% green
10% tan

Clearly things of changed. Tan is no longer available, and Blue has been added. And now today, I just opened a bag that was easily 50% green.

Are there any more recent stats on M&M color ratio?
