Imported Camembert in China is Danish!

Camembert you find in China in most supermarket is imported from Danemark!
However Camembert is "appelation d'origine contrôlé" from the village of Camembert in Normandie, France.

How come Danish cheese can call itself Camembert?
It might be that writting "Danish cheese" on the packaging enables to go around the regulation?
Anyway it is sad to find only counterfeit Camembert in China! And most Chinese consumers love Camembert.
