Changing a product attributes Label does not update on product pages.

Hi Everyone,

Not sure if I am missing something but I added a new attribute for Size and had called it Size Mens. I then added some products and needed to change the title to Size which I did. However that did not update on the exisiting products. Is there somewhere I should reset the products so it takes the new Label.

I noticed this function:

public function getLabel()
if (is_null($this->getData(’label’)) && $this->getProductAttribute()) {
// If no attribute label seted
$this->setData(’label’, $this->getProductAttribute()->getFrontend()->getLabel());
return $this->getData(’label’);

In /app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Model/Product/Type/Configurable/Attribute.php

Handles what the label is displayed as for each product.

If I return


instead of


I get the most recent label for the attribute.

Any explanation of why or what I am doing wrong?
