MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Toymaker “Hasbro” has reportedly made changes to a Play-Doh toy set after parents complained about a component that resembles a portion of the male anatomy.

“We have heard some consumer feedback about the extruder tool in the Play-Doh Cake Mountain play set and are in the process of updating all future Play-Doh products with a different tool,” the company said in a statement to KTUL.

Customer complaints on the Play-Doh Facebook page date back to November, however the number of complaints has increased since Christmas. Some parents say the toy is too phallic.

The company has offered customers who already purchased the toy the option to have a replacement part sent to them.

Play-Doh posted an update on its Facebook page on Tuesday, December 30th:

“We have heard some consumer feedback about the extruder tool in the Play-Doh Cake Mountain playset and are in the process of updating all future Play-Doh products with a different tool. Should any consumer want a replacement extruder for this item, they can contact Hasbro’s Customer Service Department at 800-327-8264.”
