Can I cook a chicken with the giblet bag in?

I bought one of those Perdue Chicken Roasters that comes with the pop-up thermometer and the bag of giblets inside the chicken. I let it defrost overnight in the refrigerator like it tells you to and I always do, but this time I couldn't get the bag of giblets to come out. Usually it slides out nice and easy, but this one was glued in, I swear. I ended up tearing the bag a little, but not terribly.
Anyways, I put it in the oven anyways but I'm anxious now. The bag is made of a material that doesn't seem like it would melt or hurt the chicken in anyway, but the instructions do tell you to take the bag out before you cook it.
So, MeFi, should Mrs. Penguin and I eat it?
