[Ed. – New category: Cold pressed extra-virgin crude.]
One of the final acts of the Trump administration was almost certainly one of the most confounding for Alessandro Bazzoni, a restaurant owner in Verona, Italy.
As part of a crackdown on blacklisted Venezuelan crude, former President Donald Trump’s Treasury Department accidentally slapped sanctions against his company on Jan. 19 in a case of mistaken identity.
“It was a mistake,” Bazzoni said, speaking to Reuters by telephone from his restaurant in Verona on Thursday.
On Wednesday, Treasury reversed course and acknowledged its error, removing sanctions from AMG S.A.S. Di Alessandro Bazzoni & C., as well as sanctions on what appears to be a graphic design company in Porto Torres, Italy.
