We looked all over the net and couldn't find anything that suggested doing so, though the only reasons they gave was the difficulty of removing the giblets, which has already been done and the possiblity of juices overflowing. I just wanted to make sure its not going to get people sick.
As long as the temperature is correct, it will be safe to eat. If you can, it might be a good idea to get an instant-read thermometer to check the temp.

Just put the turkey in the bag and in the oven at the temp recommended on the roasting bag box. If your bird has a pop-up, position it in the oven so that you can see it. When it pops up, it's done. If it doesn't, look at the bird regularly starting at about 4 hours. When you see the top browning nicely and juices in the bottom of the bag, take it out and check the temp. You can poke a little hole in the bag for the thermometer and it won't hurt anything if you still need more roasting time. Also, remember to put the flour in the bottom of the bag to keep it from bursting.

Use look bag for frozen boxed turkey

I cooked a frozen stuffed turkey (President's Choice brand) in a Look bag and it turned out perfectly. I cooked it for the time indicated in the instructions less 15 minutes. Instead of putting 2 tablespoons of flour in the Look bag, I added 2 tablespoons of gravy mix. About halfway through the cooking time, I tried to flip the turkey over. Some of the juice spilled out from the steam holes into the nonstick roast pan. So I didn't flip it all the way over I just flipped it to the side because I wanted to keep the juice in the bag. At the end of the cooking time the juice that had spilled into the pan, had caramelized and along with the juice still in the bag made a delicious gravy. The meat was tender and moist and very flavorful.
