Keep or toss expired tomato sauce?

I have an unopened glass jar of store-bought vegetarian tomato sauce that has an expiration date on it of 2010. Other than being a little dusty, it looks brand new (no rust, no bulging on the cap, etc.). Is it safe to eat?

Anecdotally, I also had a 2011 unopened glass jar of a different brand of tomato sauce that I opened last night, and then became nervous about it and ended up tossing it, even though it smelled fine and the spoonful that I tried tasted fine.
I saw this thread
, but that was for (1) a 2-year-old expiration date and (2) canned sauce, not jarred.
