Has Farberware changed something with manufacturing in the past few years?

Has Farberware change their manufacturing or gone down in quality in the past few years? What prompts me to ask is I have a pair of stainless skillets I got about 7 years ago I use day in, day out and they still look brand new. I more recently got 3 new pots in their "classic line" based on my positive experience with the skillets. Those 3 pots ALL have one or two tiny "dark spots" on the inside that have appeared after just a couple months of use. Barkeepers friend doesn't take them off, and they remind me of the little pits silver-plate gets when it comes in contact with salt. I'm vegan, so all I've made in them is plant-based, not cooking at high heats (except boiling potatoes or apples) haven't burnt anything to them. If it was one, I'd assume I got a bad pot, but it's all 3.I don't think I even want to bother to have them replaced. Just curious if they're quality standards have really dropped that much in a couple years or if I just lucked out with the original skillets?
