How can I keep the rubber head of a spatula from coming off?

Have a rubber spatula and the rubber head continually comes off of the wooden handle. Can I use glue to reset? What kitchen-friendly glue can be used?

    It comes off so you can clean it inside here's glue "Titebond III Ultimate Wood Glue and Titebond II Premium Wood Glue have both been approved for indirect food contact. For this reason, it is the glue that we recommend for making cutting boards."

    They are normally made that way so you can clean it. The spatula opening where the wood goes in either is stretched or the wood has compacted, most likely the rubber stretched out some. If you glue it you won't be able to clean it if something does leak inside. Spatulas are not expensive, and last a long time with proper care, why not get a new one and keep the old to use as a spare if you need it. I have some silicone ones I have had for ten years or more and they kept there shape better than the rubber ones and don't come off the wood stick at all without a real good tug for cleaning when necessary. I have a rubber one that we use with our big mixer that we have had since the mid nineties, I am amazed that it hasn't dried out!

    Get a super glue that you can put inside head. Insert handle and let it dry.
