"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," the Pawtucket-based multinational toy and board game company posted on its Facebook page. "Should any consumer want a replacement extruder for this item, they can contact Hasbro’s Customer Service Department at 800-327-8264."

Hasbro made the offer after receiving thousands of complaints from parents who noticed the shape of the syringe-like tool that can be used to squeeze the Play-Doh modeling compound for decorative cake icing.

It's been said that negative reactions surfaced online since two months ago, but it was around Christmas that more parents, especially the conservative ones, called the company's attention because of the tool's design.

However, many also posted hilarious jokes about the controversial toy instead of taking it as a serious matter.

Facebook user Rocky Kirchhoefer said: "My mom wants to know what number to call to get a bigger one shipped out." His comment was liked over 4,000 times, which is about 66 percent of the likes garnered by Hasbro's status post.

The extruder tool looks like a regular cake decorator for some, but the dirty minded would surely think about something else.
