What is wrong with my scallions??

I have been noticing a trend lately. When chopping my green onions, there is a slimy, clear, almost gel/jelly like substance in them.

I wash them (not with soap), dry them, let sit for a little bit and then chop. I have bought them from different markets in NY and still the weird stuff.

What the heck?
