Error associating all .ply files to MeshLab in OSX El Capitan

When trying to associate MeshLab application to all the .ply files with the Always open with or Change All...  buttons I get the following error
An unexpected error occurred (error code -10813).
The operation could not be completed.

The problem is that MeshLab is missing the key CFBundleIdentifier in its Info.plist.
To solve the problem edit its plist file
> open /Applications/ 
and add the key CFBundleIdentifier with value com.vcg.MeshLab.

Then touch the application tell OS X about the change
> touch /Applications/
And retry associating the file type.
