MSNBC is reporting that Federal health officials have sent inspectors into Chinese plants that make chicken jerky pet treats to investigate potential links to illnesses and deaths in hundreds of dogs in the United States.

MSNBC says staffers forSen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, and Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, confirmed Wednesday that Food and Drug Administration officials were conducting the inspections.

More than 4,000 people have signed an online petition on Change.org, asking Nestle Purina to recall the treats sold under the brands Waggin' Train and Canyon Creek Ranch.
