Broken oil drain plug and oil pan.

So I took my car to the dealer (voluntary oil change - its been 8,000km on that oil). I come to pick up my car late afternoon and the SA tell me there is a problem. When the mechanic took out the drain plug, he stripped the threads on both the plug and the oil pan. I asked if this was a common occurance, he said "We've seen a few". My car has had one oil change (after break-in) and it was done at the same dealer.

New oil pan and plug on route from Vancouver.

Has anyone heard of this?
