I bought a bag of frozen potatoes, accidentally left them out all night
then threw back into the freezer. Are they safe to eat?

Are they sour or rancid? In the very least you are not helping the texture
any. When in doubt, chuck it out.

They should be save to eat, but they will definitely get freezer burn
when they refreeze.

Yes.  They are partially cooked before they are frozen so they are not
likely to spoil.  The texture will be less than when you first purchased
them.

I wouldn't hesitate to eat them myself under those
circumstances.
