You will have to remove the labels from all Issues:

But if you do this by Bulk Editing, all other labels of the edited Issues will be removed.

A second way is to remove them directly in your DB, but this is just recommended if you really know what you are doing.

This might help:

I want to point-out that with a recent version of JIRA you can now remove a single label from issues using a bulk operation.
