Crossed app logo in macOS notifications

Occasionally, on macOS, I get some notifications with the app logo is crossed out, like this:

Crossed out Chrome notification

I thought it was because of permissions issues, but couldn’t find the problem in my settings. Turns out, the fix is to kill the Notification Center, and let it starts again automatically. This can be done via the Activity Monitor, or via the command line:

killall NotificationCenter

I found the solution on Reddit, but since I’ll inevitably have forgotten next time it happens, making note of it here.
