How can I remove the alpha channel from jpg images automatically?

I am using a deep learning code based on PyTorch that requires 3 channels but my images have 4 channels. I saw this answer but I do not know how to convert all the images in a folder to a counterpart image that does not have an alpha channel.

Here is the error I receive:

RuntimeError: Given groups=1, weight of size [64, 3, 7, 7], expected input[1, 4, 224, 224] to have 3 channels, but got 4 channels instead

For example, how can I perform the following command for all the images I have in one folder? My images have the extensions jpg, jpeg, and png, but I don't mind if they all become jpg.

convert cat.png -background white -alpha remove cat.jpg

find . -name "*.jpeg" -exec convert "{}" -alpha off "{}" \;
find . -name "*.png" -exec convert "{}" -alpha off "{}" \;
find . -name "*.jpg" -exec convert "{}" -alpha off "{}" \;
