France halts sale of 'Diane 35' pill over health risks


France on Wednesday halted the sale of a hormonal acne drug manufactured by Bayer that has also been used as a contraceptive pill. Four women have died in the past 25 years from blood clots attributed to Diane 35.

Diane-35 is sold in 116 countries around the world, according to the ANSM website.
