unknown 3 inch rubber thing flat with two... Teeth?

Last night I was emptying my KitchenAid KDFE104DSS5 dishwasher when I found this on the tub. I looked all over inside it trying to figure out where the heck it came from. It's about 3 inches long.

I have a 2½-year-old child so it's possible he found it somewhere and stuck it in the dishwasher but even so, I don't recognize it.

    I’m voting to close this question because it isn't about home improvement.

I asked on reddit's whatisthisthing and they identified it as a rubber foot from my IKEA cheese grater.enter image description here

    That is some serious sleuthing! Very impressive. (Assuming you have an IKEA cheese grater, of course... :) Please also accept your answer (by clicking the check mark), this tells people this issue has a resolution and prevents the system from bumping the question to the top of the list every few months.

    Reddit Whatisthisthing is an amazing tool. I tried to accept it as the answer but I can't for 48 hours because it's my own answer. Jun 19, 2020 at 12:51
