TJ's confusing and perhaps misleading Cheese naming [moved from General Topics]

I was just at Trader Joe's to get some Parmigiano Reggiano. What I saw were three different cheeses, all from Italy. Parmesean Reggiano, Grana Padano Parmesean and the Parmigiano Reggiano. None of the cheeses had anything more than Product of Italy on the label. It's my understanding that to call it Parmigiano Reggiano it has to be made with a specific recipe and in a specific region. So what are these other cheeses?

Thanks,
jb
