If you don't want to get any output, you can always redirect it to /dev/null. 
If the message you get appears on stderr, you can redirect only stderr. Try 
it out:

(Assuming a bash-like shell, redirecting all output to /dev null:)

$ su someuser -c command > /dev/null 2>&1

(Just stderr:)

$ su someuser -c command 2> /dev/null

Best regards
