At 0600hrs while performing Operation SSOP Review and Observation procedures the following Non-Compliance was observed: The ceiling directly above the start of the of product line #2, the rib line,a span of liquid, beaded condensation was observed. This condensation was a span approximately 5 feet by 30 feet. One person was wiping the condensation when I observed it. The product was directly below the area that was being dried/wiped. The production line was stopped, and approximately 4 people arrived with mops to help dry/wipe the area. At this time there was also condensation observed above product line , round line, on the pipes that are directly above the product. At that time there were no personnel addressing the condensation above line . As a corrective action the condensation was remove in my presence. When the areas were wiped/driedlines #2 were released for production.The production line was stopped for approximately 10 to 12 minutes while the condensation was removed.
