Exploding Gochuchang Paste

Ok so I am seriously addicted to Bibimbap. I wanted to get the dol sot and make it at home. I found a jar of Gochuchang paste for the spicy sauce and never got around to making the dish. Anyway, last night I discovered my jar of Gochuchang had ruptured in the cabinet and dripped all over the place...
Anyone have any ideas why and since it is fermented do you think it was still good by any slim chance? I threw it away, but I really hated to. It was not that old and my house is neither excessively warm or cold.
What do you think?
