Please Diagnose: K1000 Scan

I'm experimenting with an old Pentax K1000, dropping the film off at a local processer that scans film into 8mp files.

I understand that there is visible grain in film (the photo linked below was taken on Fuji 400 X-tra -- fairly fine-grained for 400), however most shots, while looking to be properly exposed, display the "salt" haze shown in this photo (warning: large 100% crop):

Any ideas on what's causing the hazing in the grain?
