Italians are having a good laugh. Italians know parmigiano, they would be banging on the doors of the Roman Senate if this happened here. This kind of thing is serious business.
Where I live in the Veneto the cheese makers make a similar product called Grana Padano. They do not want nor are allowed to call it Parmigiano (a cheese from Parma), and American makers cannot use the word parmigiano, so they change it around and label it Parmessan. Next time you are in Safeway or Walmart check the label. You will see those changed letters.
