France said it was halting sales of an influenza vaccine made by Swiss drugmaker Novartis AG as a precaution after potential impurities were found in batches of the product in Italy.

Health Minister Marisol Touraine said on Friday she had asked for all doses of Agrippal to be withdrawn from the market.
