Check out tr(1)
It will quite easily remove the extra CR in every line.
Then, if you need, you can rename the clean file to the dirty file
  something like:   # tr -d "\r" < dirtyfile > cleanfile
                    # mv cleanfile dirtyfile

Sorry, it takes two steps.
Thre are other methods that do it without a second file, but
for newbies, this is easier to understand.
