GFI showing open grd.

Hey, all. Kitchen was renovated.. GFI near the sink is showing "open grnd" on a plug in tester. I checked the ground on the box and plug, seems ok, anything else I have to look for? Other plugs were added and they are ok....Thanx.

Probably a loose ground wire on the box just before this one on the circuit...

My first guess would be that the pigtail ground wire to the outlet is not fully into the wire nut with the rest of the grounds in the box.
