That push stick looks like it’s about 3/4” thick, so I assume you had the blade guard removed to make such a narrow cut? Correct?
First suspect would be the riving knife wasn’t/isn’t set up properly(more than likely too low).

A good, solid, properly set riving knife makes it very difficult(nearly impossible) to launch a piece of wood on either side of the blade, keeper or cutoff.
