OAK BROOK, Ill. — 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.
