Egg Yolks-Okay or Not?

I have four egg yolks in the fridge. I made a white cake the other day that only called for the whites.
Are the yolks still safe after 3-4 days in a container in the fridge?
I'm gonna make a coconut tart that calls for yolks, and I'd like to be able to use them, but only if I don't poison anyone!
