Could the filters have been sitting around a long time before you used them and the seals dried out?

Or the sealing surfaces were contaminated with old gasket/o-ring material when you changed them last?
I did use filters that were in the boats spare parts inventory so lord knows how old they were. I vaguely recall they were sealed in plastic, but not sure...definitely new but don't know how old they were.
