Yes and no, U can eat a lick or two without becoming sick. But consuming large amounts can lead to getting sick because of the raw egg in it. So I guess it depends on how much you eat any think more then a couple spoon fools might make you have a stomach ache.

It most likely is. If there are no preservatives added, when you re-constitute dry mix you are adding moisture, thus increasing the Available Water (aw) of the product. Batter is starchy and pathogens such as B. cereus LOVE starch foods- and they are sporeformers, so they will be heat tolerant and love through cooking. Batter is not at acidic product. The combination of a high aw and more basic pH would most likely make it a PHF. The only way to know for sure is to test the pH and aw and compare them to the FDA Food Code Interaction table for pH/aw.
