cron 'test' message in my /var/log/messages file

When I open my /var/log/messages file, I keep seeing hundreds of lines like this:

Dec 12 03:02:00 tcm CRON[1395]: (root) CMD (test -x /usr/sbin/run-crons && /usr/sbin/run-crons)
I tried to read the cron man pages and I looked in my /etc/crontab file, but I just don't see where this is comming from.

Does anyone know how to get rid of this?
