You probably did not include label option in the second instance of outreg2. 
It's the last one that counts. The following codes will first add and then strip 
labels. The last line is telling it to make it go away.

sysuse auto, clear
reg mpg wei length
outreg2 using temp, see label
outreg2 using temp, see

The reverse is also true. Labels can be added very last.

outreg2 using temp, see
outreg2 using temp, see label

The ability to add/erase labels at anytime is not mentioned by the help file.
