Mahmoud Ahmed Ibrahim, the university's housing director, and Ali Mahmoud Abdel Hafez, head of the school's kitchen nutrition department, were sentenced for the food-poisoning of hundreds of students in two instances in April and also were fined, Ahram Online reported Wednesday.
Eight chefs were sentenced to one-month prison sentences each, al-Masry al-Youm reported.
The food-poisoning incidents touched off protests by students, some of whom called for the firing of Grand Imam Ahmed el-Tayyeb, who oversees the al-Azhar religious and educational institutions in Egypt.
Egypt's Health Ministry said at the time the second instance was the result of salmonella.
Al-Azhar operates mosques, universities, schools and charities, and also issues religious edicts, Ahram Online reported.
