Mushrooms and shemitah status

What is the status of mushrooms vis-vis shemitah? It wasn't clear to me from the wrapper.
Rabbi Moshe Bloom
Mushrooms are grown indoors and on detached platforms all year round. They do not have kedushat shevi'it. It says on the wrapper. ללא חשש טבל ושביעית. That means it is not considered shemitah produce.
