OAK BROOK, Ill. - McDonald's says there are no plans to take a talking Happy Meal toy out of distribution, even though some customers say it sounds like it uses curse words.

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

The company issued a statement saying the sounds the small yellow figures make are nonsense words, nothing offensive or profane.

But some are interpreting one of the utterances as an obscene phrase commonly abbreviated as "WTF."

McDonald's says "a very small number of customers" have been in touch with the company about the toy. McDonald's said the promotion is supposed to run through the end of July.
