I assume you changed the oil after this incident. How much oil came out? If there were still a couple of quarts in there, I'd feel OK. If it was dry, I'd suspect some engine damage. I would for sure report it to the manufacturer. Worst case you get nothing. Best case they cover engine repairs. Most likely case, they give you a free filter.
PS, I read test results a while ago that deemed Purolator Pure1 filters the best. I use them on everything now. At 3000 mile oil changes on my '98 Camry, the oil is still translucent when it comes out, not jet black. That seems like a good sign to me............
