Can you soak cashews too long?

I soaked cashews in my fridge for 4 days (forgot about them)...will it be harmful if I use them anyways?

if they have been refrigerated, i cannot think they would be harmful. But why have they been soaked?

Cashews have a soak time of 2-4 hours, so 4 days is a really long time. Personally, I would throw them away. Bacteria could grow quite a bit in that amount of time and I'd imagine that their texture would have changed by now.
