Safe to kill old pid's?

If I did a kill -HUP on the nginx master process, and a few days  
later there are still a couple processes that still say "nginx:  
worker process is shutting down", is it safe to simply run a kill  
command on this individual worker processes? Will it interrupt nginx  
or make it unstable in any way? Any idea why this might occur?
