How Long Does Refrigerated Egg Salad Last?

We had some egg salad in the refrigerator that had "use by January 9, 2010" stamped on it, I was hesitant to have it for dinner tonight, though, because I opened the container on December 7, 2009. We hadn't eaten much of the egg salad that night, so there was quite a bit left. I searched online for information on how long egg salad might last in a refrigerator. Some people posting answers to others asking the same question stated it was only good for a couple of days, while others said 3 to 5 days. The maximum time I saw anyone mention was a week. I was hoping to find a more authoritate source than just guesses by people posting in forums, though. I did find a statement on a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) site regarding Tips for Easter and Passover Food Safety stating the following:

Since the recommendation from the FSIS site was not to use egg sald after 3 to 4 days, I threw away the egg salad.
