A number of years ago a published report said that an alarming percentage of tested cell lines that were being used found to be mycoplasma contaminated. I think that one explanation was that earlier models of freezing vials were used in freezers where the samples were submerged in liquid nitrogen and this led to nitrogen leaking through brittle frozen gaskets into cell samples, and taking along contaminants. In any case, I think you need not over react; you're not alone. Just take care of the problem now, and consider whether if affected earlier results, but you probably don't need to retract everything done by you, and your cells' sources, for the past decade.
I found this from a web source about mycoplasma:
Average cell culture contamination rate:
5 % in industry, 47 % in academics
(I suppose in industry they screen more regularly).
