Appliances made by GE for Wal-Mart vs for other retailers

Does anyone know whether small home electric appliances made by GE and sold in WalMart, are different from the appliances with the same model numbers sold elsewhere?

There is a very large US retailer that for years has had manufacturers (of various wares) make products for this retailer, and the retailer says to buyers "look!--it looks the same as the higher-priced model made by Famous Manufacturer X."

What the customer is NOT told is that the products are made much cheaper--thinner-gauge metal, etc etc.
