Oil Pump Pressure relase valve on 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix

My 2003 Grand Prix had the engine seize because the oil pump pressure relase valve went bad causing the seal on the oil filter to rupture. Is this a common problem with this engine? Was a recall ever issued?

For what it's worth I have never heard of an oil pump pressure release valve on a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix stick causing the oil filer seal to rupture. Also, I can find no service bulletin or recall for this issue.
