A question about a jar of pickled onions I found in my fridge: will it be the cause of my untimely demise?

I pickled these pearl onions in Dec. 2011, put them in the fridge and totally forgot about them. I found them today and on inspection, they look perfect, pretty even. They are not mushy or smelly, perfectly firm and totally white, only translucent.
Is it safe to eat them? They have been swimming in vinegar, but I did not process the jar. they were simply submerged.
