It appears that you are misunderstanding the label option in recode. It is meant for naming a label that recode creates when you add text to the transformations like (1=4 good) (2=3 very good). It does not appear to be meant to accept an existing label and apply it. So, you will need to use a loop to apply the labels to the new variables or else specify the labels explicity in the recode command.
