According to the 11/30/98 Plastics News:

"Dean Foods has begun testing aimed at replacing the PVC with
glycol-modified PET for labels on its Milk Chug polyethylene bottles.
"In addition, Dean is working with suppliers to create wraparound
labels for its half gallon and gallon containers. The company hopes the
wraparound labels will privde a bolder brand identity. In addition, Dean
and other companies could take advantage of promotional opportunities such
as coupons, on the labels." [i.e. this is the LDPE snap on label that does
not require any adhesive].

This is the precise recommendation that the Plastic Redesign Project
made to Dean last fall.
