We have searched a sample of 9.6 million BB̄ events for the lepton-flavor-violating decays B→he±μ±, B+→h-e-e+, B+→h-e+μ+, and B+→h-μ-μ+, where h is π, K, p, and K*(892), a total of sixteen modes. We find no evidence for these decays, and place 90% confidence level upper limits on their branching fractions that range from 1.0 to 8.3×10-6.
