know your farmer

Really it depends on many things. If you know where your food is grown, it can make a difference. Hydroponically grown lettuce is usually much safer, as are greens grown in large open fields. The regular tilling of the soil tends to keep the slug/snail population down. Thorough washing certainly lessens the risk. Cooked foods are not a worry. Fruits need to be wash well. This isn't a new problem, nor is it just in Hawaii. Southern mainland states like Louisiana also deal with rat lungworm.
