Missing or invalid data [condition]

I'm having a bit of an issue with the above warning in Merchant centre.  It is displaying on some of my products but not all.  I don't have the structured data/microdata on the page for condition on any items as they are building products, mostly paints and solvents. All are items that you just wouldn't sell as anything other than new, the site doesn't sell any non-new products at all and isn't ever likely to.

Last time we used Google Shopping on the site this was labelled as a "suggestion" rather than a "warning" and I'd read that the structured data if included must match what is visible to the user so felt it better to not include it at all than to include it and imply to site customers than some items aren't new.   Is there any way to stop this warning other than to have "condition new" with appropriate structured data mark up on every item on the site?

To resolve this warning, you will need to add structured data to every product landing page. Regardless of the product condition statuses that is the same for all products (new). You will still need to add it to the product landing page.

Thanks for the quick and straightforward reply.

I'd just been looking through some older posts regarding microdata and was rapidly coming to the same conclusion myself.

Great insight & quick question I added the XML values to my feed. However I still see the erorr, does Offer.itemCondition need to be in my feed somewhere?
