Should he have eaten it?

My husband ate a small jar of opened caviar that has been in the fridge an undetermined amount of time (longer than several months). Internet seems to indicate caviar should be eaten with 2-4 days of opening the jar (vacuum sealed, not from a refrigerated section) but doesn't indicate if this is for flavor alone or safety. Expecting food poisoning? Should we be heading to the ER tonight? Clinic tomorrow? Wait and see?

For what it's worth, I told him to ask metafilter before he ate it. He insisted because it was preserved (pickled?) that it would be fine.
