Expiration notice coming from staging server, but I didn't use staging server


I’m getting expiration notices that explicitly says it’s coming from the staging server:


[ Note: This message is from the Let’s Encrypt staging environment. It
likely is not relevant to any live web site. ]

You issued a testing cert (not a live one) from Let’s Encrypt staging
environment. This mail takes the place of what would normally be a renewal
reminder, but instead is demonstrating delivery of renewal notices. Have a nice

DNS Names: movies.benshome.net
Expiration Date: 07 May 17 20:29 +0000)
Days to Expiration: 9

The strange thing is that I don’t remember doing any staging server runs. I certainly didn’t do any on all 3 of the above domains(each is a separate certificate). All 3 are in live use, and all 3 have renewed since I initially created them. I’m using certbot,and I don’t remember using --dry-run, --test-cert, or --staging (which, as far as I can tell are the options that would result in running against the staging server). What’s causing the staging server to send me these notifications?
