Oil Filter Choice

I have a 2007 Cobalt LS. I am looking for a filter and part number, that has a check valve built in.
Is there such a filter?
If so, a brand and or part number would be nice!
Thanks

I appreciate all the reply's!
I checked on the Napa Gold, it is supposed to be a better filter, but in its description, it does not mention a built in check valve.
Just wondering if the AC Delco filter or the Autozone filter specify a check valve?

There isn't one. It's a cartridge.

Looks like this, no moving parts.

The picture looks like the one I bought from Wally World. It had no moving parts either.

I just got done looking on Autozone.com
The Fram Tough Guard, descrition says it has a Anti drain back valve.
Here is the Link
Fram Tough Guard/Oil Filter (TG901 | 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt 4 Cylinders F 2.2L SFI DOHC | AutoZone.com
I might have to try one, or at least go by and take one out of the box, and inspect it for myself. See if it has any moving parts!

Looking at the site it says No Anti Drain Back valve.

Ya, the filters are just a cartridge. Easy to change, durable too.

In the product description, it states it has the Anti drain back valve. But, also at the bottom in the specs. It says No Anti drain back.
I will go look at one first chance I get.
I looked the part number up for the Fram Tough Guard filter, at Walmart.com.
Here is its Description.
FRAM TG9018 Tough Guard Oil Filter:

•Uses a 9 percent higher level of synthetic media
•Provides 6 times more engine protection than the average leading economy oil filter
•Outstanding 99 percent dirt trapping efficiency
•Silicone anti-drainback valve holds a reserve of oil in the filter to help protect the engine during start-ups
