It is a peroxide former.

And the proper protocol for handling is you don’t… a hazmat team or the bomb squad

I just did a lab safety inspection and found a bottle of Benzaldehyde with crystal formation.  The bottle is dated back to 5-25-1989.  I am not sure if this is peroxide or just polymer being formed.  What are your thoughts?  If it is peroxide, what is the proper protocol for handling it?
