Trouble with Genuine Oil Filter

Changed engine oil today and went to fit new genuine oil filter ERR3340 and it tightened up too quickly, when I removed it the threaded rod it spins on to came out with it. It did not appear to be crooked, there must have just been a slight difference in thread. I tried the old filter which was also genuine and it spun on no problem. So this time around I just put the old filter back. Has anyone else had this issue with the genuine filters? Is there some trick I'm missing to getting these spun on? Like I said it appeared to be going on straight and I'm not sure how it could crossthread cause the threads are so course. Tried both new and old filters by only hand-tightening and new one does not want to thread.

are you talking about the large rubber ring on the filter?

That's why I like to deal with my local NAPA auto parts store. If it's the wrong part or it doesn't work, I just take it back.
And NAPA has quality stuff.
