Quarks have electric charge, so yes, they can cause EM waves.
There are lots of times when quarks interact with the strong force, and end up emitting gamma rays as a result of their interactions. Gamma rays are just a very high energy short wavelength version of EM waves.

If they emit gamma rays, the electromagnetic interaction is involved, together with the strong interaction.
