This is just my .02, but I heard from my local auto parts dealer that I have an account with that Fram started recalling a lot of their filters due to failure (under normal operating conditions) and I was advised against purchasing from them until it could be rectified. Hopefully someone on here has more time and can link to information that agrees with his statement or disproves it. I would suggest calling to make sure that those are not apart of the recall. Some filters may have thinner metal used in the casing or slightly different plys of filter media. Either way I run Wix or Motorcraft filters and I have cut them open for comparison and didn't notice a difference.
Edit: This was about two to four weeks ago when I last purchased a filter.
