Mushroom Contamination Causing Possible Mutations

Can contamination cause mutations in mushrooms?

I had a bunch of blocks not complete their sterilizing cycle properly and most of them ended up with a patch or two of bacterial contamination. This block was interested because the mushrooms growing above the contamination show signs of mutation. Is this mutations from the contamination, or perhaps an oversupplimented block? who knows. But to me it looks like the cause of the mutation is the bacteria right below it.
