Citation: At approximately 2115 hours, while performing the schedule ISP task 06DO1 the following noncompliances were observed: While walking through the injection room area I observed a hole on the wall near the floor scale and sections damage on the wall near the injector. I also observed black mold like residue on a wall patch caulk located at the same wall that I observed the holes. In the injection room I observed peeling paint and extensive amount of rust on the metal cover of Jack #28 that was in use at that moment to move the gray plastic bins that contained pork bellies, also the battery charger in spice room showed extensive rust. In the stuffing /racking area (room 102) I observed condensation dripping from the ceiling above the metal product bins lift directly in to a empty bin. No product was involved in any of the above mentioned noncompliances.
