FOX19 - Parents around the country are experiencing some shock after opening a newly released Play-Doh toy.

One part of the Hasbro Play-Doh Cake Mountain Set is causing some concern because of its erotic look.

KTUL in Tulsa first reported this story in November. They talked to some parents who expressed concern about the toy part, called the 'extruder.'

The tool is meant to be used as a decorating tool to create the look of icing on the Play-Doh cake.

"It's pretty phallic. It's a pretty phallic cake decorating piece, not necessary, I don't think," a woman named Ashley told KTUL.

After receiving some consumer complaints, Play-Doh issued this statement on their Facebook page:

"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."
