According to the man page you can do disklabel -D which should delete all 

 Delete all existing labels (by 1's complimenting the magic number) before 
writing any labels to their default location. Implies -r If -D is specified 
without a request to write the label, then existing labels are just deleted. 

If that doesnt work im afraid i dont know. This is a bit too low level for
