Might want to read up on Rat Lung Disease that no one really wants to talk about but needs to be addressed, has been found in Hawaii. The slime you mention is probably from slugs. Most important is to THOROUGHLY wash all fruits and vegetables even those you aren't eating the exterior like bananas and pineapple. Following precautions will keep you safe and like you said "hope restaurants are too".
