Ama­zon.com, un­der fed­eral in­ves­ti­ga­tion into whether it vi­o­lated U.S. sanc­tions against Iran, on Fri­day ac­knowl­edged selling con­sumer goods to at least one per­son on the gov­ern­ment’s list of peo­ple and en­ti­ties as­so­ci­ated with ter­ror­ism.

In its quar­terly fi­nan­cial re­port, Ama­zon re­vealed that it sold about $300 worth of con­sumer goods to a per­son sanc­tioned un­der Ex­ec­u­tive Or­der 13224 of 2001, which cov­ers peo­ple and en­ti­ties be­lieved to be ter­ror­ists or sup­port­ers of ter­ror­ism.

A Fe­bru­ary reg­u­la­tory fil­ing from Ama­zon noted an­other sale or group of sales to a per­son cov­ered un­der that coun­tert­er­ror­ism or­der, amount­ing to $1,300. It was un­clear whether that cus­tomer was the same as the per­son men­tioned in the lat­est fil­ing, or whether the per­son or peo­ple named in the ex­ec­u­tive or­der have links to Iran.

Ama­zon did not re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment.
