Rebuild the Spotlight index. If you try to search now from the magnifying-glass icon in the top right corner of the display, there will be an indication that indexing is in progress.

OK... I followed the instructions in the link and re-indexed my hard drive. While it was indexing, the app updates disaappeared, but as soon as it finished indexing the HD they came back. I'm at a loss... any thoughts?

Bring up a search window in the Finder by pressing the key combination . Search for the name of the application. Delete all outdated copies that are found.
If the search finds no outdated copies, see below.

Actually, I got it to work. I did the spot light reindex thing again and then I rebooted and they went away. I didn't reboot the first time. I just came back on here to thank you... you were right the first time. SO... Thank You!!!

Just wanted to weigh in that I'm having the same problem and it looks to have stared around the same time as you're post Nov 19th 2013. I'm wondering how many other people are having this same problem and if it was triggered by something in the App Store?
I'm re- indexing spotlight as I write this and will try the restart after it's done. On a side note didn't there used to be a command to reindex somewhere in the dropdown that appears when you serach in Spotlihgt (Menu bar)? Or someplace else? That whole add a folder/delete the folder thing is pretty cheesy.
