The ban had been lifted (refer below Legal status - courtesy Wikipedia) but still it is advisable to keep out of children and for adults recommended only for small consumption.
Red Bull has been subject to bans in France, Denmark, and Norway for several years, but they have been lifted afterwards, and the energy drink was re-legalized in those countries.
The French ban began in 1996 due to concerns about taurine, a substance prohibited in several other countries. This meant the drink could not be sold as-is in France. Instead, a different recipe that didn't contain the ingredient was introduced. The ban was challenged by the European Commission and partially upheld by the European Court of Justice in 2004, before the French food safety agency relented in 2008 after being unable to prove definitively the existence of any health risk, taurine-related or not.
