Catalyst below threshold, try running some Seafoam through intake to do a good cleaning, follow the directions, and then run a bottle of Techron to the fuel tank on your next ill up, if the code returns then have the O2 sensors tested with a live data scanner, it could be a slow O2, if they check good then you will eventually have to replace the catalysts.
