Suppressing gpg messages from php exec command?

I'm pulling my hair out over this one, can anyone assist?  I've searched 
google for hours but to no avail.  I'm trying to suppress gpg output from 
within a php script.

Here's the important stuff.

--------- PHP -----------------
$msg = $some_gpg_signed_clear_text
$comd = "echo '$msg' | /usr/local/bin/gpg --decrypt";
------- END PHP ---------------

I get the unsigned text in $res without a problem.  The problem is that the 
following output is sent to the terminal/browser/whatever.

gpg: Signature made Thu 03 Apr 2003 06:24:21 PM PST using DSA key ID AABBCCDD
gpg: Good signature from "Blah Blah <>"
gpg:                 aka "Blah Bleh <>"

I've tried adding ALL of the following to the $comd command line with no 

--logger-fd 1
--status-fd 1

Is there ANYWAY to suppress these messages?  I'm assuming that if the 
signature is NOT validated, then the $res will NOT return the unsigned 
message, and that's how I'll verify validity or not.  Please correct me if 
I'm wrong about this assumption.

Thanks in advance for any replies
