Ministers Wael Abou Faour and Akram Shehayeb got trapped on Tuesday in the elevator of the building of Wheat silos in Beirut's port.
The two ministers remained stuck in the elevator for almost 15 minutes before efforts succeeded in getting them out.
Media reports said that they were trapped due a technical malfunction.
A person said sarcastically tweeted that the “elevator isn't following the required standards,” poking fun at Abou Faour's food safety campaign.
Abou Faour and Shehayeb were at the building to inspect the wheat silos after recently announcing that there are major violations at the wheat silos of the Beirut Port.
The case is part of a food safety campaign that Abou Faour kicked off in October.
Violations included the presence of flies on the refrigerators of dairy products, the presence of open garbage bins in kitchens, workers not wearing gloves, and frying oil that was not changed for months.
