Disney pulls Starbucks Epcot “Monorail Purple” mug from shelves

mug Walt Disney World is pulling one of its newly-released Starbucks mugs from the shelves. The mugs, part of Starbucks’ “You Are Here” collection, feature various scenes from the theme parks. The Epcot mug is done in shades of blue, gray and purple and includes a monorail with a purple stripe. Monorail Purple was the train involved in a fatal crash in 2009, whose pilot, 21-year-old Austin Wuennenberg, was killed when Monorail Pink inadvertently backed into the other train. Pink and purple were retired from the monorail fleet after the incident. Disney has confirmed that the Epcot mug will be removed from stores.
