Default Subaru's New Blue Oil Filters made in Canada

Does anybody know what the deal with the oem oil filters is? They are blue instead of black and now made in canada instead of japan. Same quality or better? Or should I start looking a purchasing puralators or some other brand?

I don't think they were ever made by Purolator, but rather Tokyo Roki.

EDIT: beat to it.
