Question about a Wix Filter-Possible Issue?

I ordered two Wix oil filters for a Corolla. On one of them, when I gently shake it, it sounds like I can hear the filter element moving. Kind of like a light swishing sound. Is this a cause for concern. No noise from the second filter. Thanks in advance.

What is the WIX number of the filters?
51394. Thanks for the reply's. I thought it could be in my head because the sound is very faint, which I should have mentioned before. My brother couldn't hear it.

May-be your sleeve or watch making noise while you shake it?
No, good guess though. No watch, and short sleeve shirt.

Did you try holding the filter still and shaking your head?

I got my money back from Rockauto. Looks like I'll use another Supertech for the next OCI. The Wix won't get here in time and I've been satisfied w/ the Supertech's. Maybe next time though. I did use the other Wix on the 2005 Corolla, so far so good.
