Looking for American-made Parmesan cheese on the grocery aisle? If the European Union gets its way, you may not be able to find it. Also missing could be domestic Asiago, feta and Gorgonzola. The cheeses would still be there, but their names might be different. As part of free trade talks, the European Union is expected to propose to ban the United States from using certain European cheese names if the cheese is made here.
