We have searched for the effective flavor changing neutral-current decays b→sl^+l^- using an inclusive method. We set upper limits on the branching ratios B(b→se^+e^-)<5.7×10^(-5), B(b→sμ^+μ^-)<5.8×10^(-5), and B(b→se^±μ^∓)<2.2×10^(-5) [at 90% confidence level (C.L.)]. Combing the dielectron and dimuon decay modes we find B(b→sl^+l^-)<4.2×10^(-5) (at 90% C.L.).
