I can't think of such an instance, but Fred may have come across something.
He's been in the High haz biz as long as anyone.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Incidents of pyrophorics in storage
Does anyone have an example of a container failure of a pyrophoric substance in storage, or even broader, ignition of a stored pyrophore? I cannot find anything in my stack of stuff apart from finely divided metallic hydrides that have self heated/ignited after >20+ years of storage of the former metal.
"In storage" is key here.
