Citation: At approximately 1600 hours while performing a scheduled 06D01 procedure, I found the ceiling of the dry storage area located adjacent to the offal area was covered with beaded condensation. The condensation was along the aluminum ceiling from front to rear. There were stacks of folded boxes in the last third of this trailer storage area. I applied the US Reject Tag B43736003 to the storage area and notified [redacted] (QC) of the noncompliance. Ms. covered all the boxes with large pieces of cardboard and wiped down the ceiling of the trailer. I removed my tag and notified [redacted] Jr of the noncompliance. The establishment is in violation of: 9CFR 416.1 which states: "Each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and to endure that product is not adulterated.": 9CFR 416.2(d) which states "Ventilation adequate to control odors,vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided."
