FWIW, people put their turkeys in paper grocery bags for many years. Sometimes I could actually taste the bag on the turkey, so it may not be the best idea. I'd definitely rather use parchment over a paper bag, but in a pinch, I'd go with the bag, and not worry about the health aspects, but more what it will do to the flavor.

A few folks here have used straight brown craft paper with good results. Haven't heard anything about off flavorings with that either.
