Vaccines in Food?

Researchers at the University of Tokyo are working on ways to get vaccines and other drugs in foods. They are working on putting cholera proteins in rice, which would effectively act as a vaccine in the body to prevent cholera. They have also put influenza vaccines in rice and anti-cancer interferon drugs in strawberries.

I have a feeling that these foods will go the same way as GM (genetically modified) foods which means that the foods will not be labeled as having drugs or vaccines in them. Therefore you will have no idea what kind of drugs you are getting in the food.

What will be the consequences for folks who have gotten vaccines and then end up getting even more doses through these foods?
