Thanks so much for the bit of insight. It really helped. I viewed the page source and found my problem was in the left column.
Here is what I discovered,
The following code was in my catalog.xml file
when I commented it out the problem went away.
Since I inherited this site I am not sure where to start trouble shooting and if I even need it.
<block type="core/template" name="left.permanent.callout" template="callouts/left_col.phtml">
<action method="setImgAlt" translate="alt" module="catalog"><alt>Our customer service is available 24/7. Call us at (800) DEMO-NUMBER.</alt></action>
