Is it okay for me to eat this?
Today I brought a tv dinner from the store and as I open the box, I notice the plastic seal was loose leaving the food inside exposed. The box was fully closed but the plastic inside was not. I know it may cause freezer burns but is it ok to eat?

No way to know if it is okay to eat. It depends on how the package has been handled, from the factory through the shipping and through the stock-handling in the store .. and going home to our place.
Are you feeling lucky?

If safe it will have suffered in taste. (If a TV dinner can get any worse, that is). TV dinners are the laziest kind of eating. Try to be less lazy and take this back to the store and get your money back. Then go home and cook a couple of boiled eggs. Far more nutritious and just as quick.

It should be as the box was sealed.

To be on the safe side, exchange it for a new item next time you go to the store. Personally though I think it should be fine, because it was frozen and the box was unopened

I've eaten things like that on occasion and never had a bad outcome. I thought it might taste freezer-burned, but it didn't ....damn annoying to find it open, though.

It PROBABLY is OK, but if the item wasn't very expensive and you have other food you can eat, I wouldn't, not because of freezer burn, but because it might have been contaminated or poisoned by a disgruntled worker.
