APs pinging google dns constantly

Has anyone else seen this? All of my Merkaki APs constantly ping google dns, which my firewall thought was a threat and shunned it causing some other issues. How do I stop the APs doing this? I ran a packet capture and it does indeed come from the AP via the wired interface.

Seems unneccesary, but Ive excluded google dns from shun to work around it for now. Not ideal.

Did you know they also ping regulary to yahoo and few other providers.. if you block them from doing such it will show on the portal that the devices are offline... bad design.. we have 300+aps and they generatoa tone of rubish trafic...  i imagine the meraki dashboard isnt stable enough to use it for Ping and DNS lookups...
