OAK BROOK, Ill. (AP) – McDonald’s says some customers have complained that a talking toy included in recent Happy Meals uses curse words.

The fast-food restaurant introduced a Happy Meal on July 3 with toys inspired by the movie “Minions.”

The Oak Brook, Illinois-based company has issued a statement saying the sounds the small yellow figures make are nonsense words, nothing offensive or profane.

The statement says “a very small number of customers” have been in touch with the company about the toy.

“Minions,” a prequel of the “Despicable Me” movies, premieres Friday.From the YouTube video above:

“…After finding it and hearing it go off, my wife brought it to my attention and we both heard the same thing. Though Minions speak a language all their own, this little caveman minion spoke something that just didn’t seem quite right. You decide for yourself, but from what I hear its not good.”
