I believe that's a case of bacterial contamination, some strains of Streptococcus and Myxobacteria produce this slime, but probably there're many more.
Some bacteria are enclosed within a capsule. This protects the bacterium. Encapsulated bacteria grow as 'smooth' colonies, whereas colonies of bacteria that have lost their capsules appear rough. Encapsulated bacteria do not succumb to intracellular killing as easily as bacteria that lack capsules.
Some bacteria produce slime to help them to stick to surfaces. Slime is produced by several types of pathogenic microbes. It may have finger-like projections (pili) to anchor the bacterium to its environment or it may have flagella which allow the bacterium to move.
Well, my advice is to toss it. Bacterial contamination is hard to fight and you'll probably loose time and patience trying to save it. You should also consider your health risk, bacteria can be dangerous.

A good rule of thumb is:
When in doubt, toss it out!
No sense in taking the chance
of making yourself ill... or worse!

Namaste,
